Synopsis: The most innovative engineering and science is done by teams of diverse people; this has been repeatedly shown by peer-reviewed research. But we only capture the benefits of diverse teams when everyone feels included. This workshop will help you prepare and practice being an effective ally and create an inclusive environment where great outcomes result.

Intended audience: The session is for those interested in becoming effective allies to under-represented groups in STEM; including undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, faculty, staff, and industrial practitioners. Certificates of completion will be provided to all participants.

 A professional WinSETT facilitator will lead participants through an interactive online 90-minute skill-building session to:

·       Explore a model for allyship for more inclusive workplaces

·       Practice a simple framework for allyship using reactive and proactive cues

·       Identify how gender impacts the effectiveness of allyship 

·       Explore strategies to be a more effective ally by considering real-life scenarios

The workshop emphasizes discussion, self-reflection, and experience-based learning.  WinSETT designed this workshop based on the latest scientific research for a pandemic/post-pandemic context and included proven strategies to change your environment and allow everyone to contribute their greatest potential.
