Joe has previously been scared to speak up in situations where he could have made a change, likely from fear of saying the wrong thing and worsening the situation. But if you never take action, how can you make changes?
In today's workplaces, there are still huge issues with inclusivity. Whilst you may not notice it in your workplace, underrepresented groups are faced with difficulties and feelings that those with privilege are likely to have never encountered. But this doesn't and shouldn't, have to be the way - being an ally allows you to amplify the voices of the underrepresented and make change happen.
In this talk, Joe would like to share with you some of his what he has learnt around how you can be better allies for inclusivity and make improvements not only in our place of work, but in our every day lives.
