At any point in life, people may find themselves being an “Ally” to a particular person who represents a minority. Being an Ally is not only a privilege, but a major responsibility, involving not only the willingness, but the skill to do. This program presents participants with an Ally competency model for their own personal skill development, to be used continually as they grow in their relationships and affinities. Bringing a lap top is helpful, but not required for participation.
This course was previously titled: Ally 101: A Competency Approach.
