For the fourth year in a row, I’ll be teaching a free Ally Skills workshop the week of Security Summer Camp. Previous years have been a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to once again not attending Defcon but still doing my part to make security a better place for underrepresented people.
The Ally Skills workshop teaches concrete skills to fight biases like sexism, racism, and transphobia through a (very) short talk followed by a series of scenarios that are discussed in small groups. There’s no awkward role-playing, and people are always surprised by how much fun it is. This isn’t a tedious legally mandated workshop, it’s a practical set of tools that you’ll use in your every day work and life.
The workshop will be on Saturday from 1-3 in a suite at Caesar’s Palace, graciously provided by the fine folks at Atredis Partners.
If you’re interested, please sign up here. I’ll be in touch a week or so before to confirm your attendance.
Again the workshop is free, but if you like the work I do, I always appreciate folks donating to the ACLU (disclosure: I work there, but this is on my own time and I’m paying my own way to Vegas) or Equal Rights Advocates.
