SGO DEI Virtual Meetup: Practicing Allyship (She+ Geeks Out)


Wednesday, May 27, 2020, 5:00pm to 7:00pm




The terms allyship, diversity, equity, and inclusion (‘DEI’) have come under scrutiny due to how we approach and practice them. While we may strive to support people who have been socially marginalized, or dismantle structures that create advantages and disadvantages for certain groups of people, the outcomes do not always align with our intentions. Now more than ever, it is important for us to reflect on our roles and positionalities if we are to create sustainable change. During this month’s meetup we will explore:

  • the meaning and frameworks of allyship and DEI
  • the social implications of privilege and non-privilege
  • tips on how to approach and embody allyship in the DEI field
