About this session

It's OK that we have privilege; we all do to varying degrees. The thing that matters is what are you going to use it for? Allyship is on a lot people's minds at the moment - how do we help to elevate oppressed, ignored, or marginalised voices, without speaking for them? How do we build inclusive communities when we're so scared of saying or doing the wrong thing? How do we start making sense of lived experiences that are so different from our own?

If you want to have a conversation about what it means to be an ally, where we're all just trying to make sense of it all, then come and join in, however suits you best.

After the session, attendees will be able to: 1. Talk about why allyship is important 2. Address their internal conflict and discomfort about being an effective ally 3. Start to define their own authentic allyship style

This session is aimed at people with no/limited/some knowledge of this topic.
