[Workshop] Ally Skills

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Do you want to create a more welcoming, inclusive workplace or community? 
The Ally Skills Workshop provides simple, everyday ways for allies to stand with people who are targets of marginalisation. Allies are people who use their voice and influence in support of equity. Targets of marginalisation can include women of all races, other people of colour, LGBTQIA+ folks, caregivers, people with disabilities, people of different ages and body sizes, and others. In this workshop, we’ll learn how to identify marginalisation and discuss steps we can take to stop it in our workplaces and communities.
The bulk of this three-hour workshop is spent in small groups discussing real-world scenarios and ways to respond.
