Be an Ally


Do you qualify as an ally?

This webinar provides practical insights for men who want to be allies to women, people of privilege who want to do more to fight inequity and powerful individuals who want to be better advocates for change. You will learn:

  • How to have courageous conversations with the right words at the right time
  • How to keep bias from finding its way into decision-making
  • Why micro-aggressions aren’t really so “micro” — and how to stop them
  • How to address the burden of “invisible work” that can harm underrepresented staff
  • Real-world situations in which newsroom allies made a difference for their colleagues —and created better journalism, too

Free webinar brought to you by the Power Shift Project.
