Anti-Oppression, Allyship, and competency Trainings


Roan offers a wide range of anti-oppression and competency trainings focused on the systemic causes of social inequalities. During these trainings, attendees analyze how racism, transphobia, classism, ableism, and other factors intersect to influence people’s lives. Roan works with schools, healthcare providers, businesses, organizations, and individuals to increase awareness around the social dynamics of power and privilege—and how people can use this awareness to support systemic change.


Among a wide range of topics, Roan specializes in:

  • Understanding systems of privilege and oppression
  • Understanding racism and building tools for white allyship
  • Transgender, gender nonconforming, genderqueer, and nonbinary identities
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, omnisexual, asexual, queer and other identities
  • Alternative relationship structures (including polyamory and non-monogamy)


full day comprehensive trainings

Learn the nuances of power and privilege on systemic, community, relational, and personal levels. Deepen your understanding of the ways in which discrimination, violence, stigmatization, and oppression can play out among coworkers, staff, and clients, and learn how to create more inclusive and welcoming environments. **All full-day trainings include one free follow-up consultation in 3 months to assess organizational growth.



More concise and focused, these trainings build competency around the issues faced by particular communities, with the aim of increasing provider effectiveness and strengthening allyship skills. 



Short and sweet, these workshops provide an overview of a given identity, how privilege and oppression play out in relation to this identity, and action steps you and your organization can take to become a more affirming space.



Are you interested in making organizational changes but aren’t sure how? Are you putting together an event or curriculum and want to ensure it’s inclusive? Roan offers consultations to organizations, CEOs, Directors, Boards, and staff to map out and implement a mindful plan of action.


ongoing training/consultation

While one-off trainings are a great start, research shows ongoing trainings are the most effective way of truly creating an affirming organization. Roan offers multiple options for ongoing trainings that can be tailored specifically to your needs.


allyship jams

Do you want to learn how to be a better ally to a friend, partner, family member, client, or coworker? Do you have questions you’re not sure how to ask? Roan offers 1:1 and small group allyship jams at an hourly rate where you can expand your awareness, practice skills, and learn to use your points of privilege for the collective good.
