Allyship As Professional

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 Professional:
Throughout this session, we will address the cultural and behavioural manifestations of systemic oppression, particularly in professional spaces. This might include under-representation, institutional gaslighting, and micro-aggressions. As well as recognising these signals, we will explore how to intervene in a firm, professional manner and how we advocate for cultural change.
