What We Do

Allyship is a general practice, but it also requires the ability to identify and enact specific allyship foci. Furthermore, allyship is frequently positioned as an individual effort. However, allyship is necessarily interpersonal and institutional: it requires relationship building with and accountability to those with whom one seeks to ally. It also necessitates challenging larger structures of oppression. In this spirit, the Center for Allyship provides training and assessment that addresses general and specific forms of allyship as individual, interpersonal, and organizational values. As such, we provide resources necessary to not only train individuals within organizations to be better allies, but also to create and sustain allyship as a value of the organization itself.
