Episode 17 is a very important topic that I feel compelled to share. Pride month ended a few days ago and so did a lot of the rainbow colored logos and flags hanging around many companies. As someone who is trying to be the best ally I can be, I wanted to acknowledge two things: First, I understand that I have learned a lot from my relationships with the LGBTQIA+ Community and I'm proud I have leaned in. Second, and most importantly, I also understand that I need to learn a lot more information. I wanted to hear ways in which companies can continue to be inclusive and supportive year round. CK Ong wrote an amazing article that was published on The FAM site in June and I had her on the podcast this week to talk through how companies can continue with a 365 approach to allyship! In this episode, CK gets into the explanation of the LGBTQIA+ acronym, talks about the importance of pronouns, and of course there are also epic stories and one personal one that both CK and I share together!
