Session one

This seminar explored how to be a consistent, effective ally – someone who supports equality, stands up for the rights of others, and can be a powerful voice alongside marginalized individuals or groups. In this seminar, topics included:

  • The neuroscience of in-group and out-group bias
  • Intersectionality and valuing the multiplicity of identities held by an individual (i.e., the “whole self”)
  • Creating space so teams can thrive with a diversity of backgrounds, approaches and knowledge to find common ground
  • Techniques for holding yourself and others accountable for words and actions
  • How to amplify the voices of those who may be marginalized
