Diverse Dialogues

Breaking Bread with Our Biases: Acknowledging Allyship Blindspots through Diverse Lenses

Allyship is an active, consistent, and arduous practice of unlearning and re-evaluating, in which a person in a
position of privilege and power seeks to operate in solidarity with a marginalized group. Allyship is not an
identity, it is not self-defined—our work and our efforts must be recognized by the people we seek to align
ourselves with. it is important to be intentional in how we frame the work we do. This dialogue will focus on
ally work that reflects on power and history, and is centered in relationships and accountability to
underrepresented groups.

Presented by Dr. Valoree Gagnon, Dr. Kari Henquinet, Amy L. Howard, and CDI

Diverse Dialogues is a fantastic approach to get the whole campus and community thinking about how we can move the needle on campus/community climate.
