Being an Actionable Ally

What is effective allyship?

Effective Allyship is,“an active, consistent, and arduous practice of unlearning and re-evaluating, in which a person in a position of privilege and power seeks to operate in solidarity with a marginalised group” - The Anti-Oppression Network.

Find tips on how to be an effective ally from this 'Guide to Allyship' below:

  • Listen to others' experience
  • Be honest and accountable
  • Educate yourself on the lived experience of marginalised groups
  • Make your values known 
  • Speak up

We have a wide range of resources available to students related to the field of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI), which we have collated into a handy list.
