Monday morning at Bristol Tech Fest

How to be a great ally

9.30 – 11.45, Monday 4 November @ Watershed: The Worksop at Studio 5

At this session, you are invited to discuss the role of being a ‘Great Ally’, focused in the context of the Black Girl Movement within technology, digital and creative. Hear from black women about their experiences in these industries firsthand and what they desire from allyship; find out how the Black Girl Movement also benefits you and how you can support each other to be great allies.

This is a purposeful discussion and exploration space, led by inspiring speakers and facilitators. It includes lots of room for small group discussion, creative thinking and Q&A.
