What is "How to be an Ally"?

As more and more of us face the fact that the world is unfair and unjust for so many, we feel the pull to understand our role in supporting one another. Together, we can figure out how to create a society that works for everybody in our Canadian context here.

The kinds of questions we hope to ask include, but are not limited to: How do we learn from each other? How do I check my privilege? How can we engage in a conversation around identity, oppression, and colonialism? How do we work together?

For these sessions we have asked equity trainers to draw on their lived experiences and professional practice building bridges between communities to share their thoughts on how someone could be their ally.

Accessibility

To make it as financially accessible, the Social Innovation Institute is covering the cost of organizing these workshops. To support future workshops and create access for more people to attend, you can donate while registering and the raised amount will be used to continue these conversations! For other accomodations required to attend the workshop (i.e., tokens, child minding, etc), please email Shilbee (shilbee@socialinnovation.ca). We’re constantly learning and exploring different ways to live up to our value of creating healthy cultures and we’re always open to feedback.
