Publicada em

Have you ever thought, "I care about creating a more diverse and inclusive community, but what am I supposed to do?” If so, you’re not alone. Knowing how to be a better ally for underrepresented colleagues is unfamiliar territory for many of us.


In this talk, Karen Catlin covers key points from her book, "Better Allies: Everyday Actions to Create Inclusive, Engaging Workplaces." Attendees will learn steps they can take to:

Open the door to members of underrepresented groups
Amplify and advocate for others
Use more inclusive language (with an open source list of words to avoid & suggested alternatives)

She delivered this talk for a webinar hosted by Mozilla on March 7, 2019.
