What does it mean to be an ally?
Being an LGBTQ+ ally means using your position and privilege to support this community and advocating for change. Having workplace allies is critical for creating an accepting and inclusive environment. It is a commitment to help amplify and uplift the voices and lives, of those who are often overlooked, with equity as a goal. Allies can do several things to support their colleagues at work and create an inclusive environment.
