Here’s some key takeaways from this episode: 

We get to choose who we are when observe subtle acts of Exclusion take place

“the allies who stepped out of ally ship and into co conspirator ship are taking action are doing are saying are behaving in new ways in direct response to input that they’ve received about which they were disturbed”

We’ve got a framework to help us decide our role

“ we have been culturally and socially indoctrinated to do nothing. And that is the high impact behaviour is to move from bystander to ally”

We can give ourselves grace when we don’t meet our aspirations every single time

“I’m moving in grace, first, right grace for yourself and grace for the other.”
