Who should attend: Community members, behavioral health providers, community health workers, leadership, nurses, program planning staff, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, social workers, certified peer support specialists, educators, system navigators, cultural allies interested in learning more about Allyship are encouraged to attend.
- Description: The “True Allyship: more than just a title, it’s a verb” training will increase the awareness, knowledge, and skills required to function effectively as an Ally in communities or workspaces that are different than your own. When we look into allyship, it is someone openly committed to supporting other people who may, for whatever reason, feel marginalized, underrepresented, or in some cases, oppressed. Being a true Ally will help remove systemic barriers that challenge a person’s fundamental rights, equal access, and ability to thrive in their community. It will also help to advance health equity in your field of profession or as a community member, such as behavioral health providers, community health workers, leadership, nurses, program planning staff, psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, social workers, certified peer support specialists, educators, system navigators, and cultural allies. The True Allyship training includes, but is not limited to, five tips on being an ally and how to apply allyship in my profession.
- Learning Objectives (3 minimum):
- Recognize our privileges to have an awareness and acceptance of difference
- Detect my unconscious bias by acknowledging my own culture and navigating my blind spots
- Illustrate allyship when we make a mistake by acknowledging, apologizing, and moving on.
- Demonstrating allyship as a verb in my work or community by applying the tools on allyship.
Isaac Baez will explore allyship being a verb – that it is all about taking action and doing the work to be a true ally. We invite you to be inspired and encouraged by this impactful topic which will begin with a presentation by Isaac Baez, followed by a group of panelists where questions and discussion from participants is encouraged.
