Fostering Inclusion: Allyship and its Impact on Workplace Culture
March 31 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Project RISE is a data-driven initiative promoting inclusive cultural change for engineers. In this presentation, we first define allyship as a multi-dimensional set of actions in support of women and other marginalized groups. Our findings demonstrate the positive impacts of allies in engineering workplace cultures (e.g., women’s increased identity safety and feelings of inclusion). You will receive research-based suggestions of how to promote allyship, discussing the role of social norms in both encouraging and inhibiting allies. This research has been featured in Project RISE workshops throughout Canada, as well as in WinSETT Centre programs. (0.75 Informal CE Hours)
