Happy Pride month! We've got a great event lined up with a focus on allyship.
We'll have Hustle Crew's Sonya Barlow giving us a workshop on how to be an ally, then our sponsors Graphy will lead the discussion on the topic of allyship with a fireside chat about how we can be better allies to the LGBTQI community.
About the remote event
As our events are usually in person, we would love for people to join the event using their camera if you are comfortable in doing so. We understand we can't replicate the previous atmosphere of Triangirls events but we'll try our hardest to!
This event is open to everyone.
6:00 – Welcome and introduction by Triangirls
6:05 - Introduction to Graphy
6:15 - How to become an ally & equitable leader - Sonya Barlow
To welcome conversations around inclusive allyship and equitable leaders, create a safe space to clarify any statements which individuals may be cautious about making and define methods to become champions of diversity and inclusion
7:15 - Wrap up / Panel Discussion led by Graphy
Let's keep the discussion going after Sonya's workshop on how we can be better allies to the LGBTQI community.
7:45 - Room closing
We will be sharing the zoom link and password the day of the event (most likely 6pm) so please keep an eye on your inbox and junk folder incase.
How to become an ally & equitable leader
To welcome conversations around inclusive allyship and equitable leaders, create a safe space to clarify any statements which individuals may be cautious on making and define methods to become champions of diversity and inclusion
- The team will **discover** what it means to be an ally and how they can become more equitable leaders within the workplace and for the larger community.
- There will be **education** around the practical and theoretical definitions of allyship, leadership and equity, as well as learning the traits of performative vs active allyship.
- We will work together to build a DEI action plan, where team members will pledge their next steps towards creating equitable structures. The team will leave with clear actions to **implement** an environment to encourage belonging and create impact through inclusive behaviour and language.
