Elevate voices and perspectives of historically marginalized people by becoming an ally.
Allyship is an opportunity to elevate the voices and perspectives of historically marginalized people to level power dynamics and ensure that their perspectives are heard and accounted for in every interaction. If you’re interested in learning more about what allyship is and how it can benefit your organization, this video course is a great place to get started.
This course will take a foundational approach to help you:
- Define allyship and understand what it is and what it is not.
- Reflect on considerations for becoming an ally,
- Understand common mistakes made by allies, and
- Reflect on your own social identities to become an ally for others.
This course is designed for anyone interested in learning about allyship within a higher education setting. This course is most beneficial to anyone unfamiliar with what it means to be an ally or interested in exploring allyship within the context of higher education.
This course is part of our foundational Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion series––an intentional collection of personal development and skill building trainings––which provide education and awareness-building, self-reflection, and next steps.
