About the Event:
Whether you have been looking for ways to ally, working to energize allies, or simply wanting some tools to use when opportunities arise to ally yourself or gather more allies, this is the kickoff workshop for you!
The Philadelphia Chapters of The WICT Network and National Association of Multi-ethnicity in Communications (NAMIC) join as allies of our respective missions to present Allyship in Action. A series of workshops that takes allyship to the next level by identifying common reasons why possible allies may remain silent and ways for allies and those seeking to identify and become allies’ ways to energize and engage in allyship.
The workshop will be hosted by an experienced Diversity and Inclusion Consultant and Executive Coach, James C. Jones. You will leave this kickoff workshop with an allyship framework and connections with others who are committed to finding and becoming allies to those who may not be in the rooms where decisions and opportunities exist.
