Active Allyship: Actions and Impacts for Workplace Wellness
The concept of allyship has gained increased attention in recent years, but simply stating that one is an ally is not enough.
In practice, true allyship requires taking intentional action to create change and using personal privilege to support colleagues from historically marginalized communities. For employers, that means going beyond verbal commitments and run-of-the-mill best practices to ensure all workers are seen, supported, and included.
In this webinar, Luca Maurer, Executive Director of Student Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging at Ithaca College, will explore what it means to be an active ally and provides practical strategies for fostering equity, inclusion, and belonging in your workplace.
During this webinar, you will learn:
- How to differentiate between performative allyship and active allyship
- How active allies benefit individuals, communities, and workplaces
- Three simple actions you can take to build a workplace culture of equity, inclusion, and belonging for all
