Learning Program

Mastering Allyship

Many individuals desire to contribute to a more inclusive culture but are unsure how to. To create truly inclusive cultures that transform the day-to-day experience within the workplace, we need everyone's contributions and, therefore, the fulfilment of this desire to contribute. But that requires individuals to know what to do. Lacking an understanding of authentic allyship may inadvertently contribute to challenges.

‘Mastering Allyship’ is a 6-week learning programme designed to empower individuals as effective allies in driving diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives and thus help organizations create real culture change.

It's a program tailored to a busy schedule, consisting of small building blocks that collectively create an impactful learning experience. In the program, participants enhance their self-awareness, gain knowledge of core concepts within DEI, and, most importantly, acquire tools that empower them to act as allies in the workplace, thereby contributing to creating a better workplace for everyone.

What makes ‘Mastering Allyship’ unique?

Blended learning design: The programme takes place on the DEI Club Community platform where it seamlessly integrates online live modules with action-oriented engagement. A substantial portion of the learning experience occurs asynchronously, leveraging various learning resources such as e-learning modules, homework assignments, peer coaching, and on-the-job experiments. These elements collectively contribute to a comprehensive, impactful, and dynamic learning experience. 

Global Learning Platform: As part of the program, all participants receive a complimentary quarterly membership to DEI Club, granting access to a wide range of learning resources and opportunities that extend far beyond the “Allyship is a verb” programme itself. This includes supplementary learning materials regarding all facets of DEI, exclusive events, tools, and networking opportunities.
