Presentation byPamela Malins

We’ve all heard the term “ally.” An ally is a person who takes a role in supporting a community or group. Examples of an ally include men who work to promote women’s advancement, white people who stand up to racism, heterosexual cisgender people who support their LGBT+ friends and colleagues, and so on. There are lots of allies. The term gets thrown around quite freely. But there is a significant difference between being an “active” ally vs being an “armchair” ally. There are lots of armchair allies, and very few active ones.

This webinar will examine the role of allies, specifically looking at promising practices the group can implement to ensure their allies are actively working with them to ensure they are meeting their group’s goals and objectives.
