The STEM Equity Ally workshops were developed by PMSP Equity LeNS (Equity Leadership Network for STEM) team, a group of regional equity experts and STEM education experts. The goal of these workshops is to empower educators, community program staff, and others who work with marginalized or underserved youth to effectively serve as an Ally*.
Have you attended two or more Ally sessions? - For partners who have attended two or more of our previous Ally workshops, please consider attending this alumni session where you can connect with our co-facilitator team and with others deeply immersed in STEM equity work. You will also have the opportunity to explore what you need and what your organization needs to continue growing as an Ally.
*Ally - Someone who makes the commitment and effort to recognize their privilege (based on gender, class, race, sexual identity, etc.) and work in solidarity with oppressed groups in the struggle for justice. Allies understand that it is in their own interest to end all forms of oppression, even those from which they may benefit in concrete ways. (Center for the Study of Social Policy)
