This 2.5-hour session provides an in-depth discussion of diverse gender, sex and sexuality. It will build upon the knowledge gained from prior training or your own lived experience, exploring the issues facing the LGBTIQ+ community.  

The focus is on community building through open group discussions, case studies and problem solving. 

Topics include: 

  • Understanding issues associated with disclosing sexual orientation or gender identity 
  • Learning about the impacts of discrimination 
  • How to become a more effective bystander 
  • Strategies for being an ally to the LGBTIQ+ community 
  • Referring staff and students to appropriate local resources, support services and assistance 
  • Creating a committed network of colleagues across UNSW 

Once this training is completed, you will have the option to join the ALLY@UNSW Network. The network provides access to ongoing professional learning, resources and support services available at UNSW; and invitations to participate in events like Mardi GrasIDAHOBIT and Wear It Purple
