Ada Initiative to run Allies Workshop in Canberra, September 21

The Ada Initiative Allies Workshop focuses on what individual people can do to make their workplace or community a better, more positive place for women. The workshop teaches people how to respond to sexism in a productive way, whether online, in the workplace, or in person. Participants in the Allies Workshop will learn:

  • Brief, effective responses to sexism and discrimination
  • What responses don’t work or have a negative effect
  • How to choose their battles wisely
