STEPS - Actionable Allyship in the Workplace
Time & Location
About the Event
What does it look like to be an ally not just in words, but in action? How are we speaking up and recognising when privilege and power come into play in the workplace?
With the death of George Floyd and the subsequent global protests supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, it is clear that the historic and systemic racism faced by millions of Black people around the world cannot be tolerated anymore - so, what choices can we all make to be a part of the change?
Join us for a 90-minute interactive workshop where we explore how bias might inform our decision making in the workplace, own the ways our privilege effect those choices, change the way we think about that privilege, and live the actions of an ally – starting with conversations, getting uncomfortable, and working towards greater equity for all.
Utilising a blend of drama-based exercises, theory and facilitated discussion, the session will:
- Provide an opportunity to experience positive ways to enable conversations about race and Actionable Allyship with colleagues.
- Explore what Actionable Allyship looks like in practice and what role our unconscious bias can play in getting in the way of success.
- Consider what organisations can do to create space for conversations about race.
