About this event

The Women's Place invites *man-identified allies to help create a more inclusive and equitable culture for women and minoritized groups at Ohio State. In this in-person workshop led by male campus leaders/Advocates, learn about gender bias, the skills and strategies to interrupt it, and ways to contribute to positive changes on Ohio State's campuses.

Ally workshops are part of the Advocates & Allies for Equity initiative launched by The Women's Place and partners in November 2016. This NSF, evidence-based initiative involves male leaders, or Advocates, convening to develop male Allies into a cross-campus network in support of advancing women and underrepresented faculty and staff.

This in-person workshop will take place on the central part of the Columbus campus. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing the exact location.

Why Ally Workshops Include Only Man-identified Participants

The facilitations include only men and man-identified participants to offer a safe and supportive space for participating in critical conversations. It’s an environment where men, often for the first time, can openly explore their questions, confusions, hopes, and concerns related to diversity issues in their organizations.

If you have questions about accessibility or wish to request additional accommodations, please contact womensplace@osu.edu. Typically two weeks' notice will allow us to provide access.

*Since gender identity is an internal, inherent sense for an individual, we specify man-identified as an inclusive term which may or may not correspond to a person’s sex assigned at birth or to a person’s primary or secondary sex characteristics.
