What being an ally means to me

Being an ally means supporting people and promoting acceptance of normal human differences. Allies can help to create a culture where all individuals feel supported, included, and valued.

Sometimes allies stand up to bullying and discrimination, helping people to feel safe to be their authentic selves. Nobody should be bullied or excluded due to normal human characteristics such as ethnic background, religion, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, neurology… or any other reason.

Being an ally can involve participating in and promoting staff support networks, helping to foster an inclusive culture.

Anybody can be an ally. It does not require specific skills or lots of time. It is just about caring for other people and wanting to do the right thing. Thanks for listening 😊
