Allies are allies in solidarity - and an important piece of the puzzle of a more equal-opportunity corporate culture. It is about actively, consistently and courageously using one's own privileges in a spirit of solidarity. It means building coalitions with marginalized groups - with the common goal of a more equal opportunity workplace. Learn to work together, hand in hand, to fight the very forms of discrimination that do not prevent you yourself from flourishing. In our Allyship training, you'll learn how to begin your journey as an Ally and build a supportive and empowering culture in your organization.
Allyship takes place on different levels - intersectional instead of one-dimensional. You will learn about these levels in the Allyship training in order to be able to think and act in a truly comprehensive way of solidarity: What constitutes effective allyship? What is the role of marginalized people when working with Allies? How can cis people advocate for trans people's issues? What should white people do to address racism? What role does the structural level play in this? And how do we do this as an organization in a way that really benefits communities in the long run?
"True allyship is reflective and supportive. And for teams: indispensable."
What makes a good Ally and how to act in true solidarity when you see injustice in your workplace.
Understanding allyship as a process that begins with reflecting on your privilege and requires courage and constant learning and unlearning.
when you can act as an ally, when you should pass the mic, and how to avoid false allyship.
In our interactive impulse, you'll first learn more about your privileges and the most important Ally basics. In small and large groups, we will discuss blockages and fears that prevent many Allies from becoming truly vocal. In scenario discussions we will find ways together how you can become an effective Ally and change your company culture for the better. We speak German and English - feel free to ask us.
