How to be an Ally (Virtual Workshop 1 of 2)
July 19, 2022, 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Second Workshop is August 23, 2022- Register for the second workshop here
Build awareness, perspective, and skills on how to be an ally in the workplace for underrepresented individuals and communities frequently marginalized due to their cultural identities. Allyship is essential to creating inclusive, accessible, and equitable workplaces that truly create a sense of belonging for all. To do so, we must first recognize the privilege that members of majority groups have in a professional context, and how that privilege can be leveraged to aid in eliminating systems and processes that limit equal opportunity.
In this workshop series offered by the NASPP’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiative, participants will:
- Develop an understanding of what it means to be an ally
- Learn to recognize and implement the observable behaviors of an ally
- Walk away with action items for your continued development as an ally
