On becoming an Active Ally: Anthony Ostler

Anthony Ostler is an important name in Board Voice history, having been integral to the work of founding our non-profit and leading our board in its early years in 2009-10.

He’s now living in Boston, Massachusetts, where he’s head of Stakeholder Engagement, Global Marketing at State Street Corporation. He was named State Street Pride Ally of the Year in 2020. Here’s an interview on the State Street website with Ostler talking about his journey to becoming an “Active Ally.”

As a leader in my organization and a white cisgender heterosexual male, I increasingly recognize why it’s incumbent on me to encourage others to open their hearts and minds. By listening and continuing to learn, I am in a stronger position to take visible action and inspire others to see the value they can bring in contributing to positive change.
