Allyship As A Being-In-The-World

Course Description:
The Allyship As… programme is designed to consider the different roles we occupy as PhD candidates and researchers and develop the skills and confidence to promote social change and disrupt systems of oppression. It looks at the theoretical and practical aspects of anti-oppressive practice in a high support, high challenge environment. This is hosted by Lou Chiu (she/her), a Culture and Relationships Coach and Consultant who specialises in allyship, safer spaces in helping professions, and Existential Coaching.
Allyship As A Being-in-the-World:
In this session, we will focus on the values and resources that underpin allyship behaviours. Based on the assumption from intersectionality theories that each of us is ‘oppressor and oppressed’, we look at personal, cultural, and epistemic resources to create physical and psychological safety for our communities.
