On Handling Demeaning Comments, and Other Actions for Allies

Each week, we share five simple actions to create a more inclusive workplace and be a better ally.

1. Say something when hearing “Yes, dear”

2. Also say something when hearing “You don’t look like a ____”

3. Capitalize the first letter of each word in a hashtag

4. Don’t offer condolences to transgender colleagues

5. Provide “need to have” products in restrooms

Everyday actions to create inclusive, engaging workplaces. Together, we can — and will — make a difference with the Better Allies® approach.
