How to Be a Good Ally

Allyship is talked about a lot, but it’s a concept that is often misunderstood. Being an ally is not a one-time action, nor it is not a label you can earn. Allyship, especially allyship in the workplace, is an ongoing reflection that involves learning and unlearning. It requires consent and consideration. And it is an essential set of behaviors to challenge oppression and give space to others. In this video you will:

  • Understand what being an ally is and what it isn’t.
  • Explore the four allyship behaviors developed by Kayla Reed.
  • Learn from examples of allyship in action.
