In Being an Effective Ally we discuss simple, everyday ways to support marginalized groups in their workplaces and communities. Participants learn techniques that work at the office, social events, conferences, and online. Attendees are encouraged to bring up personal experiences and hypothetical scenarios for group discussion. Being an Effective Ally is hosted by the IGDA Allies SIG.

Takeaway

At the end of the Being an Effective Ally session, participants will feel more confident in speaking up to support marginalized groups and be more aware of the challenges facing them in their workplaces and communities.

Intended Audience

Being an Effective Ally is intended for everyone interested in improving their skills in speaking up for and supporting marginalized groups. Anyone can be an ally and this discussion allows participants to practice how to handle uncomfortable situations in the real world.
