Workshop Description:

Allyship Defined: “an active, consistent, and arduous practice of unlearning and re-evaluating, in which a person holding systemic power seeks to end oppressions in solidarity with a group of people who are systemically disempowered.” As a professional in an industry (builder, inspector, designer, trainer, operator, boss) we are in a position of leadership – and have an opportunity to do better.

Learning Objectives:

This session will focus on what Allyship is (and isn’t) in words & practice. Attendees will be given tools and resources to use in their ‘allyship toolbox.’ Opportunities to ‘do better’ in various professional roles will be looked at – aka what inequalities are we perpetuating that we can impact.
