Event description
Allyship: what women should know before they offer support.

About this Event

The past weeks have been of deep self-awareness and self-examination, specially for white women. A lot of so-called solid beliefs, like feminism, have been scrutinized for its true inclusivity. And, it turns out that even the feminist movement  is in danger of perpetuating a culture built on white supremacy.

This event intends to challenge previous notions of what it means to be an ally. Instead of discussing how white women can help, our speakers will focus on what white women should know before they offer their support.

Come with an open mind.


Listen to this.

Systemic changes in culture, behavior and work policies need to cover with deep self-examination if we are to make progress that is sustainable, rather than superficial.

Let’s feed our minds to create a better future together.
