Venue: Virginia Room
Cost: No cost to attend

The Ally Skills Workshop, presented by the Ada Initiative, teaches men 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 we teach are relevant everywhere, including skills 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.

Participants of all genders are welcome! The workshop works best with about 20-30% women, so we encourage everyone who is interested to apply. For more information on the Ally Skills Workshop click here
