The best allies understand that allyship is about progress over perfection. That means there will be mistakes and failures along the way. Afterall, that is how allies learn to be better. Yet, most hopeful allies wonder if they are getting it right. It is common to wonder, “I think I'm a strong ally, but what if my colleagues of diverse backgrounds don't see me that way?” or “I want to be a better ally, and I am not sure if I am doing enough.”

  • Accept that allyship begins within
  • Apologize and own shortcomings
  • Ask for feedback
