DR. HARDEN IN ACTION
HOW TO MOVE BEYOND PERFORMATIVE ALLYSHIP AND BECOME A GENUINE ACCOMPLICE
In these racially fraught times, Dr. Kimberly Harden has created an on-the-job guide for those who have an uneasy sense that racial justice must be served, but don’t know what to do. The question she answers is: What can we do to evoke justice in the context of the workplace—the realm where we’re most likely to meet others with backgrounds different from our own?
Using Harden’s framework of Ally–Advocate–Accomplice, this kind, simple, yet thorough guide offers concrete steps for how we can take actions that will elevate ourselves and our colleagues. As the introduction notes, The Allyship Challenge is about “how to move from awareness to action and encourage those around you to do the same.”
"Dr. Harden has a great way of speaking truth to power. She is direct and unapologetic about who she is and creates space for others to speak their truth without judgment. She provided insight and tools on how to handle Racial Battle Fatigue and Microaggressions. Being able to create a safe space in these emotionally trying times is a gift."

Chief People Officer, Limeade
"Thank you Dr. Harden! It was such a pleasure meeting you, and thank you for sharing your insights with our group. We spent a significant amount of time focusing on outcomes and failed to do the basic work. You're right, little things make all the difference."
