Avoiding performative allyship: How to ensure you and your business are accepting, inviting, and safe for the 2SLGBTQIA community

Jennifer Thomson, MACP, RP, CPT, NFS and Michelle Bridgman, MSc
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Live webinar, October 19, 2021 | 9 a.m. to noon EST

Our society is becoming increasingly accepting of the 2SLGBTQIA community, but with that comes some nuances of diversity and inclusion practices in advertising. During Pride Month we see most large companies advertising inclusion. They are waving Pride flags, and donating to 2SLGBTQIA causes – but how do we know these companies are truly inclusive?

This introductory webinar will discuss performative allyship, what it means, and how it is harmful to the 2SLGBTQIA community. Learn how to avoid performative allyship, be a true ally to the 2SLGBTQIA community, and create an open and inviting environment in your personal and business practices. You will learn: the five pillars of effective allyship; concrete ways you can alter your online and in-person presence to be more inclusive and inviting; dos and don’ts of allyship in business; and how to make a real difference for the 2SLGBTQIA community.
