What is a Monash Ally? Find out in our 17 August workshop
The Ally Network is a group of staff who are allies to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) community at Monash. Members of the Ally Network take a proactive stance against discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex status. They cultivate an inclusive culture on campus.
Allies are not expected to be experts on sexuality and gender. They are simply committed to ongoing learning and examining their own biases. Allies are a visible presence in support of the LGBTIQ community on campus.
All staff are welcome to participate and stand together as allies, including those identify as LGBTIQ and those who do not.
