Print materials

MBA Allies has ready-to-go informational materials and templates that we can tailor to your specific school and needs. Email print@mbaallies.com

Description

Have ready-to-go print materials to hand out about your allyship group and inclusive practices. These go hand-in-hand with having a website, so that the physical handout can refer to more online information and signups.

Goals

  • Reach many people with information they can hold in their hands and take with them
  • Raise awareness about the allyship club
  • Raise awareness of inclusive practices
  • Have professional looking handouts give credibility to your club

Theory of Change

  • Many people won't go look at a website or articles on their own, but will take a few seconds or a minute to read through a physical handout

Logistics

Costs and food

  • Printing costs vary widely with different options such as paper stock, color, and quantity

Target / likely audience

You don't want to force handouts on people, so you'll most likely be giving these to people who want them.

Location / Participation Size

  • Give these out at any event related to allyship – especially at your own events, and especially at the beginning of the academic year

Roles and responsibilities

  • Program Lead. Work with designer to create handouts for (1) club info and (2) educational info. Make sure postcard is completed before beginning of orientation week. Make sure other Program leads know about handouts, have them at their events, and can easily access them

Tips and pitfalls

  • A simple and informative postcard-type handout on your allyship club can make a lasting impression on incoming first years
  • Having both club info and educational handouts during the club fair will increase your legitimacy which will increase your ability to make impact
  • Have more in-depth educational info handouts both for active club members as well as at the end of awareness raising events where people are inspired to learn more
