WorkPride 2023: Allyship for the Uninitiated

We can all do more to be active and visible allies to marginalised communities within our lives, especially within our workplaces. As we work together to overcome prejudices and discrimination, it's important to reflect how we can support other communities facing similar obstacles. Join our panel to learn more about active allyship - how you can ensure that in your work, in your actions, and in your intentions, you are doing more to support those who need it.
