What does it mean to be an effective ally for racial equity and justice?

About this Event

What does it mean to be effective allies to people of color in our work for racial equity? Whitney Parnell, executive director and co-founder of Service Never Sleeps (SNS), will lead an intensive, fast-paced webinar series designed to explore how to use individual and collective areas of privilege to advance racial justice. Using SNS’ CLAIM framework (Care, Learn, Act, Influence, Maintain), this workshop will explore what it means to adopt an Allyship lifestyle.

If you seek to promote racial equity within your organization, this workshop will equip you with tools to be an active ally for racial justice through methods of naming white privilege, centering people of color, navigating intersectionality across identities, influencing others, and continuing your own self-work journey. You’ll leave this workshop committed to the Allyship lifestyle, and prepared to facilitate change in your own workspace.

Please note that this virtual workshop is only for individuals who live or work in Alexandria, Virginia. The original Allyship workshop is a day-long session, but will be divided into two virtual sessions on Zoom. Please only sign up if you are able to attend both dates (Thursday AND Friday from 9:30am - 12:30pm) and you are able to use the Zoom platform. The workshop will NOT be recorded, but resources will be shared after. This session is also a pre-requisite for the Allyship in Action, 6-month deeper dive series with Whitney.

Allyship workshops sell out very quickly, but we will be taking a waiting list. Please add your name and we will contact you if space becomes available.
