Description

This workshop with be delivered by Athena Consumer Workforce Consulting. The workshop explores the role and value of allies, including how to identify allies, and strategies to nurture and draw on allyship in work settings. Learners will look at the concept of allyship in other marginalised communities and consider intersectional issues. This module is relevant to all consumer roles. All our courses are interactive, based on adult learning principles and learner focused. We believe that adults approach learning with a wealth of knowledge and experience to contribute. A combination of learning styles will be incorporated into the training including interactive, experiential and didactic. Our approach recognises the constant interweaving of theory and practice cultivating critical thinking and reflection, appreciating the contested nature of ideas and world views, and perspective taking through adopting ethical, human rights and social justice lenses.

This event will cover:

  • Explore the role and value of allies, including how to identify allies, and strategies to nurture allyship.
  • Learners will look at the concept of allyship in other marginalised communities and consider intersectional issues
