Beyond Allies

About the training

Beyond Allies is a 3-month virtual program that takes a deep dive into the challenges that women face in the workplace through inclusive leadership. Designed for male allies and open to anyone that is looking to be more inclusive as a leader. This program focuses on the impact of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) at work-and beyond. As a group, leaders will embark on a journey of empowerment, understanding, networking, and accountability.

With a powerful combination of thought exercises and data insights, leaders will learn results-driven strategies for becoming stronger allies.

“This program is helping me to take a look at the relationships I have with women in the workplace to determine if my actions are creating an environment for them to thrive. Do I speak up enough on their behalf when they are not in the room?”

Director Diversity & Human Resource Strategy

“The content and small group discussions were valuable in gaining insight into how I can effectively be an ally in my role. It also gave me great perspective on how my male colleagues could be thinking about allyship and how I can support them.”

Human Resource Business Partner

“This program exposes “your warts”, always in an unthreatening way which will help you grow as a Leader and as a human being.”
