Start 2018 right: pledge to actively support diversity!

Following the #WDP36 list of women in drowning prevention, I posted on how to be an ally to under-represented groups.  Soon after that, I was approached by SOBRASA, a Brazilian drowning prevention organisation,.  They wanted to encourage individuals and organisations to take the five steps towards diversity that were listed in that blog.  Together we came up with the graphic below and already, drowning prevention organisations across the world have pledged to actively support diversity.

If you want to help your organisation grow by becoming more diverse and inclusive, pledge here.

Actively support diversity

In my personal work and that of my organisation, I will actively support diversity by:

1. Recognising I am not the right person for every opportunity and sharing those opportunities with others.
2. Finding ways to involve women and people of colour who can also benefit from opportunities I am offered.
3. In collaborative work, giving full credit to the people who did the work.
4. Using my position of power to push for diversity and actively including under-represented groups in my work.
5. Challenging other people when I see or hear discriminatory action.
