Business IS personal.
You should know my values, beliefs and what’s important to me. It means that we can make sure that if we decide to work together, our values align.
Take a look and see whether working together means working for the better…
BLACK LIVES MATTER
I too have been moved to be a better ally in the wake of George Floyds death. I thought I was ‘ally enough’ but I was wrong.
I actively support the dismantling of systemic racism, unconscious bias and all other acts and belief systems that lead to Black people and those who identify as part of the BAME and/or BIPOC community being damaged, harmed, dehumanised, minimised, silenced and poorly represented. This includes any behaviours or beliefs of my own, unconscious and unintended or otherwise that feed into this.
I hope you support Black Lives Matter too. That you too plan on being part of a future of solidarity.
Here are some of the resources I am using to be a better ally. (this is by no means exhaustive and does increase daily. I will update whenever I can)
(to be updated as I continue, some of these are old favourites, some are new that I have come across as a result of the visibility of the movement)
Building this page is ongoing. Many areas require additional resources linked which means I also need to create those. Please check back periodically BUT KNOW THIS.
Unequivocally I support the rights, lives and equality of those who identify as part of the LGBTQ community.
Better access, more support and earlier intervention. De-stigmatisation and more funding. More content coming soon.
