How to Be an Ally (McGraw-Hill) is a guide for us all to be better allies and advocates for each other: providing historical context and foundational diversity, equity, and inclusion concepts; the keys to doing no harm by understanding and overcoming biases and microaggressions; new scripts and background for standing up for what’s right and intervening when we see biases and microaggressions; and ways for us all to lead the change in our companies, industries, and society as a whole.
