Inside the Program

Allyship at Work is a diversity training program that helps employees recognize their privilege and positional power and learn more than 50 specific, research-backed specific actions they can take to show up as allies.

It consists of two main components: a four-hour workshop that introduces participants to the practice of allyship and three small group follow-up sessions that provide participants with accountability and support as they put what they’ve learned into action.

Follow-Up Sessions

Three follow-up sessions encourage coworkers to hold each other accountable as they build new habits and commit to practicing allyship over the long term.

In small discussion groups, participants:

  • Share steps they’ve taken to practice allyship, including any allyship actions they’ve taken
  • Share the challenges they’re facing and problem-solve together
  • Explore more strategies for practicing allyship
  • Drive ongoing accountability by making One Commitment at the end of each session
