Beyond Allyship: How Othering Impairs Democracy (virtual classroom)

Join Kim Harris, M.Ed., of Distinctive Voice Consulting to examine othering--viewing or treating a person or group of people as intrinsically different from oneself--and explore ways to move beyond allyship to create welcoming and inclusive environments that promote unification. Discover how othering divides communities, promotes polarization, and impairs our democracy, as well as why creating a sense of unity and belonging are the next steps for society. Participants will be expected to complete short assigned readings before class, and should come prepared to engage in thoughtful discussion, share examples of othering, and explore solutions to increase unity and belonging.
