Allyship in Action
Master-Certified Life Coach

Session: Allyship in Action

This session focused on helping participants understand common barriers to being an effective and action-oriented ally. Through dialogue, interactive media, and storytelling, participants gained a clearer understanding of the subjectivity of their belief systems. And they developed a greater respect and appreciation of other belief frameworks utilized by their colleagues and clients. Many of us feel comfortable calling ourselves an ally but are not leveraging our capacity to advance the career paths of our colleagues who regularly face discrimination, bias, and inequitable treatment in the workplace. Effective allyship requires courage, determination, and the ability to de-center yourself from the process. This workshop created insights and awareness about clear actions allies can take to better support, collaborate with and advocate for people from historically marginalized groups.
