FE Women's Voices 3: Effective allyship in FE (Code: C0850)

Recent social justice movements from Black Lives Matter to #MeToo have exposed the need for us to do more in our day to day lives to be better allies. In this workshop, we will:

  • Look at what's involved in being an effective ally
  • Discuss the importance of learning and unlearning
  • Explore what effective allyship can look like within further education settings

Who is this for?

This topic is important to all women working in FE, so we are opening this session up to every woman who wishes to join, and we have made it free.

Training aim

  • Challenge weak approaches to allyship that have hitherto often been dominant in FE
  • Look at our own positional power and learning and unlearning.
  • Move beyond performativity in our allyship into action to see real systemic change across our communities.
  • Act as a catalyst to build an effective approach to allyship.


You will have the knowledge and confidence to:

  • Be an effective ally.
  • Discuss the importance of learning and unlearning.
  • Explore with colleagues and students what effective allyship can look like within your further education setting.

We will open the Zoom room at 13.35 (to socialise/sort out any technical problems) for a prompt 13.45 start and ending at 14.45 hours. We always remain for another 10 minutes afterwards for any 1:1 questions/conversations.
