Practical Steps to Understand and Advance Allyship
Terence Fitzgerald, PhD, EdM, MSW Center of Excellence for Integrated Health Solutions
In this Social Justice Leadership Academy (SJLA) Learning Series event, we will explore the concept of allyship and how those seeking to advance diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) within their workplace can improve their allyship efforts.
We will discuss and provide practical tips on how you can better engage in self-reflection, identify and avoid performative allyship, and create team environments rooted in humility and growth.
By attending this session, you will learn to:
- Define what it means to be an ally on individual and community levels.
- Understand the difference and importance of distinguishing between intent and impact.
- Employ effective self-reflection techniques.
- Apply everyday practices that one can use to be a more effective ally.
