An examination of a study led by Rangita de Silva de Alwis at the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School on “Allyship in the Future of Work.”

Responding to over 35 questions, these future leaders from a diverse demographic, examined patterns of behavior, policies and principles that could advance allyship and break down barriers to gender and racial equality in institutional settings in law, business and public life.
