LGBTQ+ Aspiring Ally
LGBTQ+ Ally Training started nearly 12 years ago. Our ally trainings were designed with the intent to change the culture on campus, one person at a time. To date, we have educated over 9000 people about LGBTQ+ identities, experiences, and ways to show support. Our Ally program has been received with open arms in a variety of ways and continues to grow! We are now a fundamental part of multiple degree programs, we offer Allly training to various Greek chapters, and even extend to our Health Science Center and Tulsa campuses.
We have recently changed the name of LGBTQ+ Ally to LGBTQ+ Aspiring Ally, a small but mighty difference. Allyship as a concept is a powerful tool to help move the social needle towards justice; however, all too often, well intentioned folks can cause harm to those with marginalized identities in really significant ways. Aspiring Ally focuses on the continued growth of an individual on their Ally journey. Rather than calling oneself an ally, an individual can make the commitment to aspire to be better, do better, and to continue to grow and learn.
