Participants will:

  1. Consider privilege in the context of intersections of their own identities
  2. Develop a working understanding of allyship for Racialized and Indigenous identities
  3. Assess which Racialized or Indigenous voices are missing from your Union, Community, or Workplace
  4. Outline and assess barriers to an intersectional approach to allyship in their workplace, union, and community
  5. Explore ways to overcome barriers and ensure your workplace, union, and community are more inclusive of a broad spectrum of intersecting Racialized and Indigenous identities.
