Allyship in Agile

Are we doing enough to welcome the DEI concepts at Agile workspaces?

Though it is believed that Agile is more inclusive and equitable than what came before, A survey done through the Business Agility Institute suggests that about 17% of individuals witnessed exclusion in inequity inside agile organizations and about 26% of them believed Agile itself could actively create exclusion and inequality.

So, what are we doing about it? DEI is not a side project a team or the Leadership must work on. It's an individual responsibility, to which we can fulfill by being allies or better allies to the less privileged.

Want to know more? Join this session on Allyship in Agile and get some immediate tangible actions to work on.

Key topics we will cover:

  • Understand your own privilege
  • Acknowledge that gaps exist, we are all human
  • In a world where you could be anything, Be an Ally
  • And find an Ally!
