Ally Skills Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Participants must register separately through ConfTool and pay an additional fee. 

DLF’s Project Managers group is proud to sponsor an Ally Skills Workshop at this year’s Forum.

Ally Skills Workshops teach simple, everyday ways to support women in their workplaces and communities. Participants learn techniques that work at the office, at conferences, and online. The skills taught are relevant everywhere, including those particularly relevant to open technology and culture communities. At the end of the workshop, participants will feel more confident in speaking up to support women, be more aware of the challenges facing women in their workplaces and communities, and have closer relationships with the other participants.

Everyone is welcome to register for this event through ConfTool, although places are limited and an additional workshop fee is being charged.

Workshop facilitators: Bess Sadler (Stanford University Libraries) and Mark Bussey (Data Curation Experts)

Ally Skills Workshops were a program of the Ada Initiative, which offered official training to facilitators like ours, in order to continue and expand its tradition of supporting women in open technology and culture.
