Lead Like an Ally

Lead Like an Ally is a virtual program targeted to managers and employees inside organizations that value diversity and inclusion yet lack the tools and time to dedicate to the cultural shifts necessary for inclusion.

Managers and employees alike struggle with how to talk about diversity and inclusion, and often shut down in candid conversations. Senior leadership and newer employees are often well-versed, and the murky middle of the organization is silent. This is important because managers are responsible for the employee experience of inclusion through daily actions, hiring, promotion, and separation decisions. They need actionable, intentional tools to be inclusive and lead like an ally.

The Experience

Lead Like an Ally is a 12-month online program equipping learners with the tools to become inclusive leaders.

The program is designed for leaders to choose their own adventure. While there are 12 modules highlighting key attributes of inclusive leaders, learners may go at their own pace and choose the modules most important to them. Each module has a quick five-minute video lesson accompanied by a workbook activity. The modules canvas the hallmarks of inclusive leaders from self-awareness, self-management, knowing your ally role, comfort with discomfort, to candid conversations, space for others, diversity storytelling, and unconscious bias with deep dives into gender, race, and sexual orientation. They conclude with sustainable systems for positive change. 

Additional benefits of the program include:

  • Additional videos, links, reading materials and assessments that tie-in to the content.
  • Quarterly interactive webcasts that are exclusive to Cornerstone members and can be accessed live or from a recording.
  • A Cornerstone interactive forum to exchange ideas, ask questions, and engage with fellow leaders going through the program.

Your progress is tracked in the system, and leaders may earn badges and be recognized for their achievements.
