Racial Justice at Work: How to Be an Active Ally

Season #4

Allyship is always active — it is what one does and how one shows up for others, not just a frame of mind. To be an effective ally requires internal work, curiosity about others, and an approach that engages those who have been marginalized versus making assumptions or deciding for them.

In this companion episode for the book Racial Justice at Work: Practical Solutions for Systemic Change (Berrett-Koehler Publishers, 2023), lead author Mary-Frances Winters and special projects editor Gabrielle Gayagoy Gonzalez sit down with contributing author Scott Ferry, Lead Instructional Designer for The Winters Group, to talk about his chapter “Allyship Is for All.” Join them as they discuss the various stages of allyship and explore concepts from white saviorism to cultural humility.
