Virtual Worskhop: Allyship

This DC-led training defines the language associated with allyship and explores the connections between the terminology, its nuances, and its implications. This training briefly reviews social identity categories from Social Identity 101 in order to understand how power and privilege influence a person’s responsibilities as an ally. Participants will learn the importance, the contradictions, and the risks of being an ally. By outlining historic and modern examples of allyship, we offer ways that participants can practice allyship, especially at Williams by using scenarios they may encounter on campus. Finally, this training encourages participants to brainstorm ways they can use their power and privilege to fight back against systems of oppression and protect those with marginalized identities.
