In light of recent events and tragedies, we have heard the word “ally” a lot. How can we be better allies in the workplace? This event, arranged by Liverpool Law Society’s Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Sub-Committee, will look at the challenges faced by colleagues and how we can all be allies to each other.
