First Onsite is committed to creating a culture of belonging and inclusion.  A big part of this is getting comfortable with the fact that we don’t always get things right and there is always more to learn.  When we embrace that there are things we don’t know, we allow for crucial conversations to take place in a safe way. In this episode, we’ll hear from Ally O'Dell, General Manager of our San Francisco office.  Ally shares about her experience as a female leader at First Onsite, how we can be mindful of the unconscious biases that we all carry, and her plans to contribute to a more inclusive workspace with the launch of our first Employee Resource Group (ERG).
