Icon for allyship

Allyship

We believe that allyship is a verb, an action. Everyone has the capacity to be an ally. It’s an opportunity for personal growth and community development for all Index employees. In a company as diverse as ours, it’s important that we all are educated on how to serve as active allies to each other.

Inclusive Leadership

At Index, inclusive leaders not only manage other Indexers, but also are aware of their own biases and actively seek out and consider different perspectives to inform their decision-making, in order to collaborate more effectively with others.

Employee-led affinity groups

We’re all on a continuous learning journey. Our employee-led affinity groups amplify the voices of Indexers from around the world to help build community and foster an inclusive environment. Affinity groups are open to all Indexers and provide educational resources, workshops and events, and safe discussion spaces.

Allyship at Index

What does being an ally mean to you? At Index, we encourage and support allyship so we can foster an environment of inclusion and make a difference both inside and outside our workplace.

See what allyship means to our affinity groups:

"Allyship is about not giving up. It is about trying your best and learning from every situation to stand up and advocate for marginalized groups. Within Diversability, we are not going to get it right every time, but consistently learning and taking small actions every day is worth it."
Index Diversability
"“Ally” is not a noun, but a verb. It is an ongoing process of questioning and re-educating ourselves, getting comfortable with being uncomfortable, and leveraging the privilege we possess. Allies have always been invaluable to the LGBTQ+ community."
Index Pride
"Allyship results in a true intersectional community where every party can be lifted up and join forces against prejudice and bias. Whether it’s in the workplace or our personal lives, we should all strive to be better allies as the world involves more than our own personal perspectives and experiences."
Index Black
"Allyship is advocating for individuals from underrepresented communities and helping each other to succeed. A company culture that promotes the benefits of gender equality will ensure that all employees feel confident presenting their ideas, perspective and experiences."
Index Women’s Network
"Allyship means empathy and compassion. It means willingness to stand with others who are different from you, learn their stories, and support one another in making future stories brighter for all. It is an expression of love."
