Include is a Verb: How Allies Make Inclusion a Reality
Training conducted by Sherry Marts of S*Marts Consulting

Ever had the experience of cringing over an insensitive remark or discourteous behavior toward someone else, but not knowing whether or how to object or intervene? In any situation in which you enjoy some social privilege (unasked for and unearned advantage over those who are not like you), you can act as an ally to those with less privilege. It takes having an understanding of privilege and oppression and being able to recognize the subtle behaviors, unspoken rules, and unquestioned traditions that perpetuate oppression. It also takes a willingness to move beyond good intentions to effective action. Allyship is key to creating an inclusive culture in any organization or workplace. This training will bring you what you need to step up and step in, including:

  • How to recognize subtle forms of exclusion, harassment, and bullying.
  • How to respond to incidents of exclusion, harassment, and bullying.
  • How to respond to more explicit forms of harassment and exclusion (active bystander intervention)
  • Case studies, small group discussion, and paired exercises
