We are all living as a combination of a number of social identities. We each are a mosaic of our gender, sexuality, race, religious beliefs, socioeconomic status, physical ability, and more. Individually, these identities are greeted with different levels of societal acceptance, and the synergistic acceptance of all our identities leads us each to a unique experience of the world. This workshop aims to build in attendees the ability to demonstrate acceptance and humility in interacting with friends and colleagues who have a different combination of social identities than ourselves. In building skills as allies, we will discuss and practice how we can use the privilege of certain identities we possess to act against the oppression that folks with less privileged identities experience. After this workshop, attendees will be able to (1) define what it means to be an ally across a variety of social identities, (2) engage skills to practice effective ally behavior, (3) discuss the importance of allyship with people who express interest or curiosity in how to be more inclusive in their daily lives.
