How to be an ally for women from ethnic minority backgrounds
I am delighted to invite you to join me, Tracey Abayeta and members of the Men for Inclusion network to discuss “How to be an ally for women from ethnic minority backgrounds”. Joining me and sharing their experiences and offering their advice will be Jesutofunmi Idowu, Mary Adeyemi, Anne Siew and BaoY Van Cong
They say awareness is curative and sometimes even well-intentioned leaders and managers have blind spots. Conversations that bring together leaders and minority voices within organisations can be a powerful tool to accelerate understanding and uncover blind spots. However, shedding a light on problems alone is not enough. Equipping leaders, people managers and all team members with practical tools is necessary too. Men for Inclusion are inviting men to get more actively engaged in action for diversity and inclusion by joining our community to learn from each other. We also support organisations through practical programmes that attract the often silent majority of white men as well as men from ethnic minority backgrounds.
One of the reasons I’m excited to sit on the advisory board of Men for Inclusion is that I genuinely believe it operates by these two principles of increasing awareness and equipping men to better engage in the DEI agenda because we recognise that we need men (who hold the balance of power) to play an active role in building a more equitable future.
