The next AWLSIG workshop – Exploring Allyship – takes place on Thursday 20th October, 10.00-11.30.

In this workshop, we will be joined by Ann Allcock, of Marshall ELearning.

The interactive workshop is an introduction to the topic of Allyship, through the lens of supporting and enabling women’s leadership at work.

The session is aimed at those who wish to consciously contribute to creation of respectful, inclusive and creative environments, and there will be the opportunity for questions and for discussions with peers.

We welcome people of all genders and in all roles to join us and to share experiences and ideas.

Key learning and reflection points will be:

  • Understand what Allyship is, and why we need it.
  • Know the characteristics, actions and behaviours of authentic Allies.
  • Learn tools for Allyship interventions.
  • Consider how organisations approach or position Allyship.
  • Identify individual actions to be a more effective Ally.
