This year brought Black Lives Matter to the forefront, resulting in a profound awakening for us all. I gained a new understanding and purpose, and a valuable perspective on how I can use my voice to stand up for what I believe.
Coming to terms with our own biases at a later stage in life can be challenging. We become set in our ways, our beliefs, and worldview, and we have to keep educating ourselves and learn about the experiences of others.
Every single person has their own perception of how the world functions and they are all different.
When we talk to others, we have to remember that they may be coming from a life situation that is distinctly different from our own. We have to actively learn about the experiences of others to practice true allyship.
What can we do to keep our awareness up? How do we talk about race and privilege with people who don’t share our worldview? How can we make our workplaces and businesses more inclusive?
In this episode, entrepreneur, business coach, digital marketing strategist, and DEI educator Jocelyn Kopac talks about how to learn more about people whose experiences are different from ours, and how to put our allyship and anti-racism sentiments into action.
