Session Name: Allyship Training: Supporting BIPOC Communities in the Workplace
Allyship is a dynamic and intentional commitment that goes beyond mere acknowledgment, actively working to transform workplace cultures and societal landscapes. As we delve into the key points of allyship, it's essential to recognize its pivotal role in fostering Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging. These key principles represent actionable steps that individuals can take to actively support and advocate for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) communities.
