Workplace Integrity: Do You Qualify as an Ally?
Mar 15 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Join the Power Shift Project for this free Workplace Integrity webinar.

Freedom Forum fellow Jill Geisler provides practical insights for men who want to be allies to women, people of privilege who want to do more to fight inequity and powerful individuals who want to be better advocates for change — particularly during this nationwide reckoning on racial injustice.

In the “Do You Qualify as an Ally?” webinar, you will learn:

*Why being an ally right now — during a period of reckoning on racial justice and the
ongoing pandemic — is more important than ever.
*How to have courageous conversations with the right words at the right time
*How to keep bias from finding its way into decision making
*Why micro-aggressions aren’t really so “micro” — and how to stop them
*How to address the burden of “invisible work” that can harm underrepresented staff
*Real-world situations in which newsroom allies made a difference for their colleagues —
and created better journalism, too
