What is Allyship?

Allyship is one of the keys to tackling diversity and inclusion issues in the workplace. But what exactly is Allyship?

Allyship is the practice of emphasising social justice, inclusion and human rights in order to advance the interests of those oppressed or marginalised in society. It is a big part of the anti racism conversation and forms a key part of our Unconscious Bias Training.

Small Steps – Giant Leaps

Allyship is not an identity, rather a commitment to build relationships based on trust, consistency and above all else, accountability. Allyship in the workplace prepares employees to better support and collaborate with others from minority and marginalised groups and involves re-learning your understanding of how you should see the world based on the perspective of those around you.

It helps to teach you the inequality and unconscious bias traits that are present in the workplace and that can have a lasting impact on the mental health, productivity and career progression of others around you.

Tackling Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the workplace.

Working together towards a shared goal is a dream recipe for businesses looking to attract, retain and progress their diverse talent. Allyship is a relationship between work colleagues that helps to create a shared goal of fairness, equity and social justice.

It can be given by anyone who has privilege. Everybody has some level of privilege as it is intersectional, however, some people have more privilege than others. Learning the value that allyship adds to individuals, teams, and organisations as well as what steps are involved in becoming an effective ally will improve the workplace culture of your business.
