Male Allyship Training

Do you know what an ally is? Do you know how to be a better colleague and leader for women at work? Do you know why all of this matters for well-being, talent recruitment/retention, and performance?

The first step to successful male allyship is education, which includes “unlearning” as much as acquiring new information. Because the concept is new and the process is not always easy, we’ve designed a novel, evidence-based training to arm potential allies with the knowledge and skills to be successful.

Across four sessions, participants will learn relevant facts and figures, how to identify (often subtle) bias and problematic defaults, reflect on their relevant motivation and experiences, acknowledge their potential fears and responsibilities, and practice how to implement these soft skills via hard practice.

Watch the video on the course's website (link below) to learn more about allyship, why it is important for businesses, and what you can do to become an ally.
