SESSION TWO | Introduction to Active Allyship
Supported by the Bell Fund
This session will provide a baseline for understanding how taking an active stance is necessary to combat bias and discrimination. You will be introduced to the concept of allyship as a lifelong commitment to cultivating an inclusive culture where everyone can thrive and succeed. You will come away from this session understanding how to better recognize micro and other aggressions and with tools you can use to take action in the moment. This session is a first step to understanding how to be an authentic ally to colleagues who identify as Black, Indigenous, a person of colour, a member of the LGBTQ2S+ community, a person with a disability, and other systemically marginalized groups.
