How to be an Ally (All Staff)

This course is a part of VCH Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) training intended to help increase our awareness of inclusion literacy, understanding unconscious bias and cross-cultural competency.

Participants will learn how to respond to incidents of micro-inequities, micro-aggressions and other forms of unintended discriminatory behaviour from a Trauma Informed Lens. The session will provide clarity around demonstrating Allyship, and the five key traits of an Ally.
