Speaking Up: How to be An Effective Ally in the Workplace
What does it mean to be an ally for marginalized individuals or groups in your workplace? Should you speak up in the moment when something problematic is said? What if these comments are coming from your boss, an “untouchable” colleague, or a particularly valued customer? Do you wait for the “right time”? What’s the “right thing” to say – and to whom..and when?

In this session, we’ll define what it means to be an ally – and what meaningful, action-oriented allyship looks like. We’ll also discuss common issues specific to workplace power dynamics that can cause people to be hesitant to speak up when they see minoritized colleagues experience problematic communication and exclusion.

Finally, we’ll discuss a 4-step model of allyship that can help you feel confident and courageous in not only speaking up in the moment, but pushing your organization for meaningful, long-lasting change in workplace culture, policies, communication practices and decision-making.

As a result of this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
• Define allyship -- and the difference between authentic allyship and performative allyship
• Identify the workplace power dynamics that can cause people to hesitate to “speak up”
• Discuss the individual factors that can cause people either miss opportunities to speak up or be hesitant to speak up
• Discuss how to prepare yourself to be ready when the need for allyship “pops up” in a meeting or conversation
• Apply a 4-step model for allyship to real-world workplace scenarios
