Exclusive for PR Council Members

Traditional conversations on diversity, equity, and inclusion have highlighted the role of allyship in advocating for historically and presently marginalized communities, but do we truly understand what it means to be an active ally?

This highly engaging program begins with a foundational overview of diversity, equity & inclusion. Participants then learn how bias, covert and overt, creeps into daily interactions and hinders true allyship. The program concludes with a candid discussion on what it means to embark on active allyship, a life-long journey rooted in advocating for, and standing alongside, historically and presently marginalized communities.

The program is filled with practical steps to take action and participants will leave with a tool kit of resources for post-session continuing education and implementation.
