Having been brought up to treat everybody respectfully regardless of their race, gender or their role in the rich tapestry of life, being an Ally is almost a natural capacity to take on. However to me being an Ally is a more than just being respectful it is being brave enough to speak up when I hear or read disrespectful comments and to use my privilege to say challenge the inappropriate voices and behaviours in the workplace and more broadly in society.
I recognise that I too have much to learn and to share my experiences with others so that they too realise that we are all on a journey.
