WE CORDIALLY INVITE YOU …
To get this movement really moving… IWL is inviting you to join us for our very first ALL IN Virtual Allyship Summit. Whether you are new to the idea of allyship, or have been practicing it for years, you’ll want to get in on the ALL IN Summit, a day-long virtual event featuring the following allyship experts and inspirational speakers.
Opening Keynote and Q&A
Educator, Author, Businessman, and Long-Term Partner (and Ally) to the celebrated and acclaimed Oprah Winfrey.
Identity Leadership and the Allyship Journey
Stedman Graham will introduce us to the concept of Identity Leadership, examining why self-awareness and emotional intelligence matter, the importance of communication, and the role of personal growth in leading and advocating for others. He’ll teach us how to step into our roles as leaders and create our own identity leadership plan, by first believing in ourselves, knowing our competence, and continually challenging – and being patient – with ourselves.
Graham will share anecdotes from his own life, as well as those from successful leaders, to demonstrate how we can all tap our passions, skills, talents, and privilege to channel the best of who we are to achieve success for ourselves and those we lead – and to be allies to those around us at every level.

Mainstage Conversation and Panel
BRAD JOHNSON & DAVID SMITH
Former naval officers and co-authors of Athena Rising and The Good Guys: How Men Can Be Better Allies for Women in the Workplace
State of Allyship-in-Action Conversation
Gender-in-the-workplace experts David Smith, PhD and Brad Johnson, PhD discuss why and how men have a crucial role to play in promoting gender equality at work. They’ll break down the results of IWL’s 2022 State of Allyship-in-Action study to address the need for investment and implementation of effective gender-inclusion programs in corporate America today.
Creating Change – Allyship Initiatives in the Workplace
David and Brad will be joined by a panel of aspiring allies doing their part to accelerate the practice of allyship in the workplace. From the creation of male ally communities and ERGs to allyship training and education to scheduled events and accountability initiatives, companies and organizations are starting to move beyond awareness of unconscious bias toward action. Meet some of America’s boldest leaders who are leading the charge on the allyship imperative, and hear what they’ve done to integrate the practice of allyship into their organizations … and what they’ve learned along the way.
This interactive keynote session will provide us all the foundational knowledge we need to build cultures of respect and equal opportunity. While focused primarily on allyship with respect to gender, the information covered will also serve as “allyship basics” in support of other marginalized or underrepresented groups to be addressed in afternoon sessions. Join Kim and Jeff to discover:
Learn from our subject matter experts as they build upon the information shared in the morning “Foundations of Allyship” session to address the nuanced behaviors experienced by, and practice of allyship to, specific gender and intersectional groups. All breakouts will cover information specific to the group being addressed:

Allyship and Intersectionality: Digging Deeper into Race, Ethnicity and Culture
Racial diversity in the workplace – from recruiting to hiring to promoting people of color – continues to move at an unimpressive pace. And a primary reason for this lack of progress is lack of allyship. In fact, recent Catalyst data reports 68% of people of color are on guard to protect against bias – racial microaggressions and “everyday” or “passive” racism – and unfair treatment within their work teams, with most reporting they are on guard specifically because of their race or ethnicity.
What will it really take to change the picture? Learn how we can all make an impact as Diya will tackle racial inequity in the workplace, address the ethnic and cultural biases at play, and provide us all with practical tips to make a difference in the workplace, one ally at a time.

Introverts and Extroverts at Work
Allyship to Introverts – Advocating for the Quiet Leaders Among Us
As the diversity, equity, and inclusion wave widens and deepens its reach, introversion is becoming a natural part of that movement. Even though half the population identify as introverts, traditional workplace cultures are still geared toward rewarding extroverts. Women often are labeled as meek or shy when they are quiet. This bias for extroversion over introversion shows up in many ways — like in staff meetings and debates where verbal volume, confidence in a crowd and “thinking on one’s feet” are lionized. We need everyone’s voices to be heard.
In this session with Jennifer, you will learn how we can unleash the performance of introverts and extroverts on our teams by pointing out organizational biases and encouraging introverts to build on their natural strengths.

Alphabet Soup Allyship: Being Good Allies and Strong Advocates for LGBTQIA+ People
The past few years have seen many organizations incorporate a focus on LGBTQ+ inclusion within their HR and DE&I strategies, with many employers making visible and vocal commitments both within their organizations and externally through support of Pride events and beyond. While this is a positive move, what’s still missing are efforts to impact the lived experience of LGBTQ+ employees when it comes to their “everyday” experience in the workplace.
A 2022 Deloitte Pulse Survey reported many LGBTQ+ employees continue to experience non-inclusive behaviors, both in the office and virtually, while 82% believe allyship helps them be out at work. Join Gabrielle Claiborne to uncover barriers to inclusion of LGBTQ+ employees in the workplace and identify actions we can all take to create change to the everyday culture they experience.

Women, Let’s Step Up as Allies for Other Women
Much of today’s commentary on allyship focuses on the need for male allies in the workplace. But what about the need for women to be allies for one another? In IWL’s 2022 State of Allyship-in-Action study, 73% of women surveyed agreed “there are women leaders in their organization that could be stronger allies for other women.”
Traditionally women have been taught to be competitive with one another because there was such a scarcity of jobs at the top. But it’s clear that strategy isn’t working. Don’t miss this powerful session with Dr. Hope Zoeller in exploring a different approach – in raising each other up and channeling the power of collaboration to change the equation.
