Valerie Aurora of the Ada Initiative http://adainitiative.org/ presented the Ada Initiative allies workshop http://adainitiative.org/what-we-do/w... at the Wikimedia Foundation on February 6 2013.

The Allies workshop is for people who may or may not be women in open technology and culture, focusing on practical, everyday ways they can support women in their community. After a short introduction on the basic concepts, we role-play or watch other people role-play through common scenarios, and discuss why some things work and others don't. The entire curriculum is available free online and licensed CC-BY-SA.

Some of the topics covered in the allies workshop are:

* brief, effective responses to sexism and discrimination
* using leadership status to support women in your community
* when to engage and when to disengage from arguments about sexism and discrimination
