WELCOME TO EMERGING ALLY

A Diversity and Inclusion site to help you become the best ally you can be

Welcome to Emerging Ally.  My goal is to advance D&I to create a positive corporate culture of belonging for everyone.  I can do this by advancing Allyship.  I want to help people overcome their concerns and move forward on their journey of Allyship.

Note: I intend to post on the 1st and 15th of each month - but frequency might change depending on current events
