Authenticity and allyship in the business world

Published: 17 March 2022

Black leaders carry extra burden. Organizations often expect them to take on advocacy roles in equity, diversity and inclusion, but that should be everyone’s responsibility, argued panelists at the Desautels Faculty of Management’s Black History Month virtual event. Moderated by Lysie Salomon (BCom’17), the panel considered authenticity, leadership, and allyship in the workplace. It featured Dr. Patricia Faison Hewlin, Associate Professor of Organizational Behaviour; Audrea Golding (BA’92), Partner at Fragomen; Martin Laguerre (BCom’95), Executive Vice-President and Head of Private Equity and Capital Solutions at the Caisse de dépôt et de placement du Québec; and Bertrand Cesvet (MBA’90), former Chairman and Senior Partner at Sid Lee.
