Advocating for change starts with empathy.

My feeling is that we can start by checking in with each other, ask all colleagues how they’re doing and what they need, have empathy for what others are feeling. We talk about Model, Coach, Care for our managers, but it’s actually a good framework for how we can, each of us, be there for each other, and for our communities. We can model that behavior we need to see, coach others on how they can be better allies, and care for each other in times of crisis.
