PowerED™ Director Jessica Scott joins CTV Morning Live on Zero Discrimination Day
Mar 1 is identified by the United Nations (UN) as Zero Discrimination Day. This day highlights how people can educate themselves to better promote inclusion, compassion, peace and, above all, a movement for change.
Today, PowerED™ director Jessica Scott joined CTV Morning Live Edmonton to chat about diverse and inclusive leadership, and discuss PowerED’s new online micro-course, Embracing Allyship & Inclusion.
Ensuring workplaces are inclusive has never been more important. More organizations are looking to be more inclusive and support their teams by embracing allyship and change.
“Allyship moves beyond diversity and inclusion in the workplace and it really occurs when people in positions of power step up and advocate on behalf of individuals, or even communities, that are marginalized,” said Jessica Scott, director of PowerED™ by Athabasca University.
“Allyship is really about action. You’re not an ally when you stay silent… It’s important to recognize that when you are in a position of power, to use that privilege that comes with that power for good.”
