This is a digital-only ThinkIn.
Gender, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, class, mental health, geography are just some of the factors that give people more or fewer opportunities for success because of the barriers put up by society. What mechanisms truly work in getting people to notice, challenge and ultimately change their everyday behaviour, ingrained habits and well-worn relationships in the workplace? Do the people with the most power to make change identify with “allyship” as a concept? How can we tell active allyship apart from performative allyship, and how do we call it out when we do? Given there’s no such thing as the perfect ally, whose job is it to be an ally to the allies when they get it wrong?
