Allies programme

A programme to explore what it means to be an authentic and inclusive ally to LGBT people in the workplace

The Stonewall one-day Allies programme gives non-LGBT individuals the opportunity to explore what it means to be an ally and the space to identify how they are going to create an inclusive environment for everyone. 

What the programme offers

  • Insight into what it means to be yourself
  • Understanding of what it means to be an ally and why it's important to have visible and active allies in the workplace
  • Practical ways to step up as an ally
  • Opportunities to explore and develop inclusive behaviours and approaches
  • Active listening skills and techniques for having good-quality conversations
  • Increased motivation and confidence to become a visible and influential ally
  • A network of peers from across a range of sectors and communities 

Who can attend

Stonewall’s Allies programme is designed for non-LGBT individuals at any level from any sector or industry.

We want to hear from professionals from a range of workplaces. We encourage diversity across our programmes, in terms of ethnic backgrounds, people of faith, disabled people and women – and those at the intersections of these identities.

Upcoming programmes

We offer in-house programmes for groups of 12 to 36. Email empowerment@stonewall.org.uk to book now or find out more information.

Two or more clients may share the cost and delegate allocation of an in-house programme by organsing as a cluster. This collaborative approach brings employees or partners together to achieve the aims of the programme and build networks across participating organisations. 

We also offer open programmes in which clients may send up to six delegates or individuals may purchase a single ticket.
