NOTE: 2021 TRAINING DATES WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THIS PAGE SHORTLY. Please email DITeam@UNSW.edu.au if you'd like to receive an email when training has been scheduled. Thank you for your patience.

All UNSW staff and students are welcome to undertake free Ally training. 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
