An Allyship Programme To Create Inclusive Organisations
What is the Allyship program?
Allyship is a simple principle which can transform the workplace for individuals from minority or underrepresented groups. WLUK has been funded by Milton Keynes Council to support local businesses to consider how allyship can help them create a more inclusive workplace in which women can thrive and hence moving towards gender parity.
Who is it for?
Anyone has the potential to be an Ally. Male Allies recognise that they have a role to play in progressing gender equality in the workplace and beyond. They acknowledge privilege and advocate for change. Sessions are not exclusively for male leaders, as we can all learn more about how to support women in the workplace better either by culture or process changes.
The program consists of a 2-hour workshop event with your organisation’s senior leaders. For smaller businesses, there is the opportunity to join a group session with other small business owners.
