Collegiality and Inclusivity: Tips for and Practice Being an Ally
Union 209, 2:00-2:40pm (Session Period 1)

In this interactive workshop, we work through two common interactional scenarios that disadvantage historically marginalized groups. We examine one strategy for being an ally in these settings and practice doing so. We also explore strategies for improving our own responses when it is pointed out to us that we behave in ways that exclude.
