We discuss what to do in practical, real-world scenarios ranging from how to welcome a woman attending a conference for the first time to speaking up when a co-worker makes a sexist joke at the office party. People leave the workshop feeling ready to take action and eager to learn more.

The workshop focuses on what men can do to support women, but it works best when about 20% – 40% of the attendees are women. This public workshop is a great way to test out the workshop and find out if it is a good match for your company or organization.

Register now to attend the workshop on Sunday, October 27 from 2pm to 5pm at Impact Hub San Francisco, at 5th Street and Mission Street, just a few blocks from the Powell Street BART station and a 15 minute walk from the Caltrain station at 4th and King.

The cost of the workshop is $175 per person. Many employers have personal development or training budgets for their employees. Ask your manager if your employer will pay for the registration fee for the Ally Skills Workshop.
