LGBTIQA+ awareness briefings and ally training

Want to learn more about the importance of LGBTIQA+ inclusion and how to be a good ally? The University of Melbourne offers Pride in Diversity endorsed LGBTIQA+ awareness briefings and ally training.

The aim of awareness briefings is to provide participants with an overall understanding of why LGBTIQA+ workplace inclusion is important to an organisation as well as to provide a level of comfort around terminology, explore challenges often faced by LGBTIQA+ employees and provide awareness on the impact that a culture has on the lived experiences of its employees.

Staff can find session details on TrainMe, and students should email the Pride in Action Network Committee to register their interest.
