Being an “ally” is more than a label. It’s about being willing to act with and for others in pursuit of creating equity! We can start by recognizing the unearned advantages many of us receive, take responsibility and break the current patterns. We all have an equally important role in this – and by doing so, we help level the playing field by creating more inclusive and fair workplace environments.
In this class:
-Set the stage with important background information and definitions
-Explore a framework to better understand what allyship looks like in action
