ReadySet Ally Skills Workshop

The ReadySet Ally Skills workshop positions people of color and their allies to successfully undertake allyship at work and beyond. By illustrating the stakes of allyship in the tech industry as well as practical tools that can be used to achieve it, this training provides an optimal way to foster healthy workplaces for the growing number of womxn, queer, and transgender people of color in tech.

The training provides concrete, actionable tools to empower employees and leaders to advocate for themselves and others.
