Professional Development Event
Lunch and Learn: Practicing Allyship
31 January 2024 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM PST | Moscone Center, Community Stage, (Level 2 West) 
Join us for a lunchtime diversity and inclusion education session.

Allyship is the continuous practice of advancing a culture of inclusion through intentional, positive, and conscious actions that benefit others. This allyship training equips participants with a framework and tools to be an effective ally in the workplace through everyday interactions, in-the-moment interventions, and ongoing advocacy. This approach is based on research in identity formation, helping behaviors, and organizational climate and culture.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will leave with an understanding of:
1. How engaging in allyship at work creates a more inclusive culture that benefits both marginalized and privileged group members
2. What they can do to keep learning and continue their journey towards effective allyship.
3. How to demonstrate effective allyship in a range of everyday work-related scenarios.
