Ally & Allyship: from awareness to action for all. This course moves participants beyond awareness to meaningful action. You'll learn how to actively use your power, position, or privilege to support and advocate for others. We'll cover key terms like Allyship, Privilege, and Opportunity Gap, and we'll distinguish the four types of allies that get things done. You'll gain practical skills for acting as an ally in various workplace situations, increase awareness of the unconscious barriers to authentic allyship, and create a more inclusive workplace by actively promoting allyship.
Participants will leave this learning session with practical approaches to work in solidarity with people from groups in which they do not belong. By doing so, people will expand their capability to disrupt behaviours and actions that exclude vs. include others.
