Hoyas as Allies: Closing the Allyship Gap

Tuesday, May 24
12:00 p.m. ET
via Zoom

To make workplaces more inclusive, companies must bridge the “allyship gap” between intent and action. Lean In’s research shows that 77% of white employees see themselves as allies to women of color at work, but only 39% actively challenge discrimination, and only 10% mentor or sponsor a woman of color. Join us as we discuss what allyship is, why it’s critically important, and how we can create a workplace where all employees feel supported and valued. Panelists include Jordyne Blaise (C’06, L’10), vice president of Diversity, Equity and Community Engagement for Circuit Clinical, Deena Fidas, managing director and chief program & partnership officer for Out and Equal, Kimberly Brown, founder of Manifest Yourself, and Rachel Thomas (C’93), CEO for LeanIn.Org. More speakers will be announced.
