In 2020, we are again proud to offer UNSW students and staff the opportunity to partake in Ally Training (designed and delivered by the Network’s convenor Andrew Addie). All UNSW staff and students are welcome to undertake this free training.

Ally Training

NOTE: TRAINING IS NO LONGER DELIVERED MONTHLY DUE TO SCHEDULING CHANGES - PLEASE SEE SCHEDULE BELOW. TO ACCOMMODATE CURRENT REMOTE WORKING AND STUDYING CIRCUMSTANCES, TRAINING WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY BY ZOOM FOR THE REMAINDER OF 2020.

This 3 hour session provides an in-depth discussion of diverse gender, sex and sexuality. It will build upon the knowledge gained from any 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 Gras, IDAHOBIT and Wear It Purple.

Managers are especially encouraged to attend this session to assist with providing support to LGBTIQ+ student and colleagues
