Allyship Workshop: A Human-Centered Approach to Allyship

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Conversations around DEI and allyship have come into focus (especially in the past several years), in many areas of tech/STEM. Common paradigms for thinking about and addressing how one might best show up in support of historically excluded groups, oftentimes focus on prescriptive or performative allyship behaviors.
In this talk, we intend to flip the script. Instead of focusing on the “correct behaviors” and “right responses” when demonstrating allyship, we’ll be taking a look at a human-centered approach for those we are intending to support, while asking challenging questions about how we each show up in a given environment or situation.
Thank you to our sponsor Google Cloud!
