She comments: "The workplace is like a dance floor. As the host, the senior leader makes the move to take everyone to the dance floor and is obliged to make sure everyone feels safe and comfortable whilst enjoying the dance together. As we continue advocating for a more inclusive workplace and local community, the more of us together on the journey the merrier. An ally is not a superhero but gives support to embrace differences, encourage people to speak for themselves and engage people to speak up for others. Embrace differences. Anyone can be atypical. "
