Demonstrate to Your Teams & Stakeholders

Your Commitment to Being an Everyday Ally


Mastering Your Emotions

Dismantling systemic racism and white supremacy cannot be done void of emotion. The belief systems that give life to both racists and allies are rooted in emotions. We kick off this course with introduction of practical tools and concepts to help you master your emotions as you navigate a bold path forward as an Everyday Ally to POC.  


Understanding Your Mind

In this chapter of the course we cover fundamental frameworks and concepts that will help you gain a deeper understanding of what emotional trauma entails and how it relevant to things like the Black Lives Matter Movement and the pandemic. We will also examine different biases that can cloud our judgement and exacerbate privileged life experiences.


Evolution of Empowerment

In this chapter we do a deep dive into a framework for the evolution of Empowerment. This framework is an original concept created by ZerModus. We go through in detail what each of the Eight Phases of Empowerment entails and how the phases correspond to Everyday Allyship.


Your Call-to-Allyship

Allyship is an inside job for benefit of your diverse team members, clients and customers. It starts with introspection and this chapter takes you through exactly where to begin with yourself so you can effectively and authentically lead your team members and your organization.


Playing Your Part as an Ally

Playing your part as an Everyday Ally requires having a clear picture of the lay of the land. We begin this chapter by breaking down the mechanisms of systemic racism at a high level so that we move forward with a new level of awareness around what resources need to be engaged and when. We then go through an extensive list of action items for Everyday Allyship.


Seeing Your Allyship in Action

In this final chapter we conclude the course with introducing you to the practice of everyday visualizing. This is critical for helping set yourself up for success to be an instrumental Everyday Ally by visualizing how you intend for various scenarios to play out.

Help You Solve


Performative Allyship

Your organization has made well-intended statements of solidarity that had an unintended negative impact or response from POC.

If you've tried to step up and do the right thing and received criticism or backlash from it, this course will help you gain a very thorough understanding of how you can begin to earn back the trust and respect of people of color. This course offers 70+ examples of different ways you can begin the work of truly empowering black individuals and communities who engage with your brand.


Unclear Role as an Ally

You want to do better as an inclusive leader, but you don't know where to begin or what your role as an ally really looks like.

Knowing where to begin your work while tensions are very high can be really intimidating and overwhelming. This course walks you through the different phases of allyship, the different levels of commitment, and the different options and resources available to you based on whatever makes the most sense for your personal style.


Lack of Trust from POC

Your employees don't trust you to be committed to anti-racist work within your organization.

The systemic racism in our society runs deep. Consequently, the distrust runs deep as well. If you value earning the trust and respect of your employees this certification course is designed to help you begin to achieve that by demonstrating a commitment to their empowerment as it directly relates to your power and influence.


More Work to Be Done

Your organization has historically demonstrated support of marginalized groups and recognizes there's still a lot of work to be done in creating more equity for POC.

You've shown up and made changes for your LGBTQ employees. You've shown up and made substantial progress in company policies during the #MeToo Movement. Now it's time for you to show up again and make more space for People of Color at every level of your organization.


Imposter Syndrome as an Ally

You want to feel more confident advocating for POC within your organization.

Common side effects of forging your own path in active allyship include feeling particularly vulnerable, cautious, unsure, and at risk of losing various privileges you've been afforded by historically not "disrupting" business as usual. Taking this executive training and certification course will help you move through imposter syndrome and find your footing as an effective and authentic ally.


Liabilities & Risk to Brand Value

You recognize your personal and organization's reputations and brand value is at risk if you don't learn how to be a better ally.

Maybe you've received less than favorable reviews from POC on Glassdoor. Maybe you have whitewashed (all white) leadership teams or speaker panels at your corporate events. This course will help you navigate a better way moving forward in terms of what you can and should be doing to empower diverse stakeholders and subsequently lower your risk and liability for discriminatory claims.

"Just as you have your own unique leadership style, this course will help you find your own allyship style so that you can begin or continue to be instrumental in empowering people of color within your organization and throughout your career."

Founder, Elizabeth Rose Fischer
