Attendees will learn what the research says about allyship in the workplace - and why it's critically important 

Lean In's research shows that while the majority of employees think of themselves as allies, relatively few are taking basic allyship actions. Yet allyship can be a powerful force for good in organizations. Research shows allies create a ripple effect that inspires others to step up and act as change agents too. In this panel discussion, Lean In CEO and Founder Rachel Thomas unpacks findings from the organization's  Women in the Workplace study--the largest survey of its kind--with some of the brightest minds in DEI and HR. Expect real talk on why allyship is not happening at work and real strategies for helping employees become part of the solution.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand why employees are not on the same page about allyship and how to fix the gap between intention and impact. 
  • Learn strategies for discussing privilege and power in productive ways and understand why it's so important to have those conversations at work.
  • Uncover the power of allyship as a force for good in organizations and how to empower employees to be active change agents.
