Allyship: How to be an effective Ally

July 2 @ 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM

This course provides a clear definition of allyship and explores the personal and organisational benefits of being an ally. The course will cover specific techniques that can be used, including planning for difficult conversations and aligning with, adhering to and maximising existing organisational processes.

This course is delivered in an engaging way, and participants will get the opportunity to consider some of the personal and organisational challenges in becoming a good ally. The aim of the course is to give candidates the confidence to challenge, stand up for, and amplify the voice of others.

Course Outcomes

By the end of the course candidates will be able to:

  • Explain what an ‘ally’ is and why they are necessary.
  • Describe what ‘allyship’ is in the context of white privilege.
