Foundations Of Male Allyship Workshop

Clear The Fog & Become An Intentional Ally

Are you concerned about diversity in your workplace?
Do you want to be a better ally, and create more male allies in your organization?

At Leading Ladies Of… we recognize that male allyship is an essential component to advancing gender diversity in the workplace. Since launching our Leading Ladies Of… communities, many men have been asking us what they can do to step up and support. Being part of our community is step one – taking intentional action can be a more intimidating step to climb. But it doesn’t have to be like that. Allyship does not need to be a mystery. It begins with honest conversation and an understanding of the tools we already have at our disposal. We take the mystery out of allyship by providing an understanding of why it’s needed and an understanding of the tools and strategies allies can put to work immediately.

Learning Outcomes

  1. The business case for male allyship – professional and personal
  2. How to be an intentional ally
  3. The ability to Identify and overcome ‘accidental exclusion’
  4. Tools and strategies for putting allyship into action

Men often point to a lack of awareness or a fear of saying the wrong thing as excuses for not being allies to women in the workplace. During this workshop, the presenters provided recent examples of gender bias and shared specific ways to intervene. We left the session better equipped to advocate for change and move from well-intentioned bystanders to active allies

I thought the Male Allies workshop was a great way to promote awareness and provide tools and strategies for being a better ally in real-world situations. Ms. McKay and Admiral Macleod were engaging, inviting, and very open about their own experiences.
