This allyship workshop consists of two, 2.5-hour sessions on two consecutive days. This program will not be recorded and is limited to 50 participants.

Identify your areas of privilege and apply tools to be an effective ally through centering people experiencing marginalization, self/mirror work, and influencing others.

Whitney Parnell, executive director and co-founder of Service Never Sleeps (SNS), will lead participants through this signature program from a racial equity lens. The training will empower you to promote racial equity and justice as a lifestyle. Using SNS’ CLAIM framework (Care, Learn, Act, Influence, Maintain), you’ll explore what it means to adopt an allyship lifestyle.
