Create an allyship leadership practice.

Let's talk about patriarchy, race, and gender in the workplace.

Let's do it in a way where we as women sit together with what's uncomfortable. Where we turn away from polarization and turn towards discourse.

And let's move towards practice; a toolbox that helps you along your journey of learning, unlearning, and relearning.

Women only.

Want to just stay in the loop? Sign-up here to continue your allyship practice as a woman in power in this community.

Introducing an 8-week online series dedicated to your allyship practice.

This is for women who:

  • are racialized and white.

  • have workplace experience and are grappling with patriarchy, gender, and race inequities in the workplace.

  • are interested in doing the inner work for allyship.

  • want tools, practices, and a community on their journey.

  • engage in respectful discourse in tough conversations.


At the end of 8-weeks, you will have a toolbox of resources, practices, stories, and narratives that will help you continue your journey of inner work. You will also gain a community of powerful women.

  • Surabhi and Saralyn co-facilitate all sessions. We dive into curated material, facilitate breakout and plenary conversation, and make space for self-reflection.

  • Practical work is key here. Each session is designed to get into your own practice and make the content relevant for YOU.

  • Women access an exclusive online space for resources and information. The cohort will decide if a community space is wanted outside sessions (eg., Slack).

Investment

This experience does not require a financial investment from you. What it does require is:

  • Your commitment to pay it forward by supporting a racialized woman/business however you can – time, money, resources... This may be in the form of mentorship, non-profit volunteer work, making connections for others, or supporting a racialized woman-owned business. We'll be asking you about this before the end of the session.

  • Your time between sessions to reflect and play with prompts and practices that move your own personal work forward. We suspect up to 2 hours per week will be useful for participants.

Now, invest in yourself. Join us for Women In Power to get:

  • Connection with a powerful cohort of women

  • Shared experiences, perspectives, and insights

  • Engaging experiences to build your confidence

  • An exclusive online space filled with resources and tools

  • A toolbox of practices and resources.

This is for anyone who wants to interrogate race, patriarchy, and gender in the workplace while building a toolbox of practices and accessing inner wisdom.

You'll start:

  • Exploring what power and privilege look like for you in your multiple identities

  • Revealing your stories, biases, and blindspots

  • Interrogating your stories to align with your intention

  • Defining what allyship means to you and developing an allyship practice

  • Creating a toolbox of practices, resources, and narratives that work for you
