Advocates & Allies for Equity Workshop

Submitted by Kris Boone,

November 12, 2021

Time: Friday, 3-5 pm

Location: Virtual

Sponsor: The Women's Place

Attention male and male-identified allies: Help create a more inclusive and equitable culture for women and minoritized groups at Ohio State. In this workshop led by male campus leaders/Advocates, learn about gender bias, the skills and strategies to interrupt it, and ways to contribute to positive changes on Ohio State's campuses.

Ally workshops are part of the Advocates & Allies for Equity initiative launched by The Women's Place and partners in November 2016. This NSF, evidence-based initiative involves male leaders, or Advocates, convening to develop male Allies into a cross-campus network in support of advancing women and underrepresented faculty and staff.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Participation is limited to approximately 20 male-identified staff and faculty members. (This will allow us to ensure that all participants as well as the facilitators can be viewed on a single Zoom screen.)

Why Ally Workshops Include Only Men and Male-identified Participants

The facilitations include only male and male-identified participants because an aversion to making mistakes, being blamed or being judged by women can keep men from participating in university-sponsored events and discussions related to issues of gender and diversity. Offering Ally workshops for men only provides a safe and supportive space that is vital to their success and fuels participation in difficult conversations.

This event will be presented with automated closed captions. If you have questions about accessibility or wish to request additional accommodations, please contact Typically two weeks' notice will allow us to provide access.
