The aim of theis study is to co-create a comprehensive framework that business schools can use to enhance allyship and meaningful engagement with Indigenous Peoples within their organizations. It will synthesize current literature on allyship with Indigenous Peoples with findings from sharing circles with business school students. It we will also outline processes and stages of allyship, including definitions, conceptualizations, perceptions, and appropriate actions. Moving towards true allyship within business schools is essential to building effective relationships with Indigenous organizations and communities with the goal of forming meaningfully engaged and mutually beneficial partnerships.
