2020 saw a record surge of allyship with the best of intentions. As new allies joined the fight for justice, equity, and inclusion, there was ample excitement for learning and an abundance of opportunities for amplification, allyship, and action. As headlines faded, and more importantly, as folks’ energy and skill levels were challenged by never-ending real-world scenarios (and countless social media “trolls”), many relinquished the driver’s seat, opting for a passive passenger approach to allyship – some from exhaustion, some from fear of mis-stepping, and some for not knowing the path forward. This workshop is designed to help participants course correct by remapping the route from awareness to action: reinvigorating a passion for allyship and accompliceship, realigning intent with impact, and action planning for right and (and some inevitably wrong) future turns.
