Tips for male allies

Notice interruptions. Ask questions about how to be supportive. These are a couple of the pointers shared during the ONA18 session “The Male Allies Toolkit.” The session created a space for aspiring male allies to candidly discuss and learn about ways to support female colleagues directly and indirectly. Olivia Allen-Price and Alex Janin from the ONA18 audio and video teams recapped the conversation in episode five of ONA on Air. Listen for tips for male allies in the newsroom.
