Congratulations on completing the Allyship 101 Workshop Series. Before moving on, we recommend that you take a moment to reflect on what you have learned with the following three questions. You can write down your answers to allow a free flow of thought or just use them to help with your internal reflection.
- What does being an effective ally mean to you?
- Have you reflected on any past experiences that you now realize were problematic? How do you plan to improve in the future?
- What is your next step in your journey to allyship?
