Allies for Racial Equity

We can all develop skills to be allies in a racialized society. We are all biased and if we are blind to our biases, the consequences are critical to the quality of interactions with others and decision-making. Managers may unintentionally harm or ignore racial outgroups, while unconsciously promote members of the racial ingroup to which they belong. Non-managers may discover increasing conflicts with colleagues who are different. By gaining awareness, learning to be allies, and manage biases, we can adapt beliefs and behavior to improve decision-making, equitably allocate opportunities, and create positive interactions with others in our work environment.
