Allyship 101


Published on August 6, 2020

I was recently invited to give a talk at the Fediverse #SummerSchool, a series of talks over the space of two weeks given via the Mastodon Fediverse.

The talk, entitled “Allyship 101: What, Why, How?” takes a look at why LGBTQ+ allyship is so important to get right and to bake into teams in both academia and in the workplace.

The key theme of the talk revolved around the idea that there’s a huge difference between being a performative ally, and practising true allyship, as this handcrafted meme (based on “This Is Fine” by KC Green) demonstrates.

You can view the full recording of the talk, including the Q&A session, below.
