So much has been said about the importance of allyship — including in the workplace — over the last year. From fostering equity to cultivating an environment of authenticity and belonging, allyship really does unlock experiences of inclusion within workplaces.
This said, so many leaders and team members continue to express fear and difficulties in stepping into the role of ally. And so it warrants a deeper dive discussion into the principles of allyship.
For this exciting webinar, bci’s founder Ritu Bhasin is joined by special guest Melinda Briana Epler, an expert on allyship. Melinda is the author of the new book How to Be an Ally: Actions You Can Take for a Stronger, Happier Workplace, her TED Talk on allyship has now been watched almost 3 million times, and she is the CEO of Change Catalyst, an organization committed to building inclusive innovation ecosystems. Join Ritu and Melinda for an in-depth, no-holds-barred Q&A discussion on allyship where they talk about:

With the rightful spotlight on anti-Black racism over the last year, one of the areas that we at bci have been receiving questions about is: as a white person, how do I talk to my kids about anti-Black racism?
From the anti-Black racism that led to the murders of George Floyd and countless others to the ways anti-Blackness shows up in the messaging children receive from their elders, teachers, peers and pop culture, it’s critical that parents hold conversations with their children to interrupt anti-Black racism.
