Ensuring everyone is feels seen, accepted and safe in the workplace.
Teams perform best when they embrace a diverse set of identities, experiences, and ideas. However, the road to nurture and sustain such a focus is one that requires a fundamental shift in how team members see themselves and one another. That’s why empowering every member of your organization to be an ally is an essential tool in supporting equality.
In this 60 minute workshop, we will discuss what allyship is and isn’t, explore why practicing allyship is important for modern organizations, and how it’s beneficial to each both individuals and teams alike. Together we will develop critical thinking skills to challenge our own power and privilege, oppressive societal structures, and talk about practical tips for practicing allyship everyday at work.
- Understand and apply the concept of critical allyship while engaging in a process of critical self-reflection.
