Equity Integration and Application Training
Ally Squared's online Equity Integration and Application Training transitions your organization’s work beyond the diversity and inclusion framework and towards equity, anti-racism, and anti-oppression. We hope to move you from good intention to better action through honest conversation, dynamic processes of learning and unlearning, and tangible commitments to breaking down oppressive systems. We specialize in providing training to youth groups or organizations serving youth audiences. We have served clients all over what is currently North America, in the private, public, and charitable sectors.

Some Things We Cover
Anti-oppression reflects a number of different approaches that address social and institutional inequalities. Anti-oppression requires that people examine their own actions and critically analyze social structures of power and privilege.
