The Ally@UNSW Network aims to ensure UNSW is a safe and welcoming place for all LGBTIQ+ students and staff.
The training program aims to make UNSW a great place for everybody by reducing barriers of fear and ignorance that lead to prejudice and discrimination.
The Network is a group of trained staff who are allies to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) community at UNSW.
They take a proactive stance against discrimination based on diverse genders, sexes and sexualities. They cultivate an inclusive culture on campus.
Allies are not expected to be experts on sexuality and gender. Their role is to be a visible presence and provide confidential support to the LGBTIQ+ community on campus. All staff are welcome to participate and stand together as allies, including those who identify as LGBTIQ+ and those who do not.
Hear from UNSW’s LGBTIQ+ Champion, Dr Bridget Haire.
Wherever you see the ALLY logo, you will know you have found a trained supportive member of staff who is able offer confidential referral to appropriate services for LGBTIQ+ students and staff.
