The University’s Ally Network supports the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) members of our community.
The network is a trained group of staff and students who support and advocate on behalf of everyone who identifies as LGBTIQ. The role of an ally is to be aware of the challenges faced by LGBTIQ people and to make a difference in whatever way they feel comfortable.
If you’re seeking information or someone to talk to about gender and sexual diversity, you can talk to an Ally Network contact.
You don't have to identify as LGBTIQ to talk to an ally.
Anyone is welcome to participate and stand together as an ally. Your role is to be a point of support for LGBTIQ students and staff, to be aware of the challenges and to make a difference in whatever way you feel comfortable.
This can include being a point of contact or standing against inequality or exclusion.
Find out more about the role and responsibilities of an ally.
This year we will roll-out gender and sexually diverse training and ally training. If you are interested in becoming an ally and undertaking the upcoming training email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
