Being an ally is an active and ongoing process, and action can be taken at all levels, such as challenging in the moment to supporting individuals who are on the receiving end of micro-incivilities and providing feedback to perpetrators of inappropriate behaviour. This course explains what it means to be an effective ally and shows how workplace allies can help tackle things like micro-aggressions, bullying, harassment and other inappropriate behaviour, and help to make the workplace more equitable and inclusive.
This course will give a better understanding of:
- the different minority and marginalised groups to whom we can be allies
- what it means to be an effective and inclusive ally
- the importance of awareness, empathy, action and authenticity when acting as an ally
- the different actions that allies can take to support people from minority or marginalised groups
- how to use the ‘Open The Front Door’ communication framework to challenge inappropriate behaviour
- the importance of taking on board feedback and learning from our mistakes when being an ally.
The other thing is watching out to be an ally when there's nobody else around... if you're reading a document, thinking, 'Oh, we could do that differently', or you've got information about a new initiative or something, you can still be an ally by reflecting on the documents in front of you. So, you can do it even when you're on your own.Prof. Binna Kandola OBESenior Partner, Pearn Kandola LLP
