Begin by explaining how you’ve also been through a lot, didn’t grow up in a rich family or anything, and had to work hard and overcome a lot make it to SVP.


What does your research say? What are all the suggested ways you’ve read about?! What ways have you researched that have gone well and what ways have you researched that haven’t gone well?

Subtext: step 1 - don’t come here asking the community you’re supposedly trying to connect with to do your emotional labor - especially for free. Part of being a good ally is not asking the oppressed to do the educating. Maybe try coming back with a few options you’ve heavily researched and asking the community to pick A,B,C or D.


Came here to say this ☝️

Just check-in, ask them how they’re doing, really listen, and help be a good ally + friend. And if you’re in a position to do it, help your agency support black professionals, improve hiring practices, etc.
