He comments: "As you mature as a leader you become aware yourself and are made increasingly aware by others of the effect and impact of your presence, voice and what is sometimes perceived as your silence. That's why being an Ally is important. It makes explicit, unambiguous and visible what your values are. Diversity and Inclusion are real, not illusory priorities. Being an Ally is a visible personal accountability to listen and act."
