About this event

The Women's Place invites 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 campus leaders/Advocates, learn about gender bias and microaggressions, the skills and strategies to interrupt them, 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 leaders, or Advocates, convening to develop Allies into a cross-campus network in support of advancing women and underrepresented faculty and staff.

Participation is open to all.

Why Ally Workshops Focus on Men

To better involve men in the collective efforts towards culture change, the Advocates & Allies workshops focus on encouraging men* to take greater responsibility for interrupting everyday and structural inequities. As the primary participants in this program, male colleagues share and learn while holding each other accountable for growth. Led by and designed for men, these sessions aim to offer a safe and supportive space for participating in critical conversations and are open to all. 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.
