Allyship has been defined as a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with individuals and groups of people who are different than you. In this session you will learn what it means to be an active ally and unpack what can stand in our way to unlock advocacy for other people - including microaggressions in the workplace. Learn how to create a practice of learning, unlearning, and relearning and how you can recognize and overcome microaggressions in the workplace. Once we understand the foundation of being an ally, we can actively support others and be a role model to proactively championing inclusion.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand what it means to be an active ally.
  • Unpack what stands in our way to unlocking advocacy for other people—including microaggressions, discrimination, harassment, bullying, or lateral violence.
  • How to create a practice of learning, unlearning, and relearning to continue to grow in your practice.
  • Identify and commit to action.

Workshop Series

This workshop is part of a 3-part series that explores psychological safety, unconscious bias, and activating allyship. There are no prerequisites to attend each workshop and individual registration is available.
