The Ally Workshop provides training for staff members to become an official UQ Ally.
The Ally Program was established to promote inclusion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and queer/questioning (LGBTIQ) students and staff through awareness-raising. At the end of the program, participants will have a basic understanding of sexually and gender diverse issues and knowledge of relevant resources that will assist them in their role as an official UQ Ally. Allies help provide a safe, welcoming and confidential environment for those seeking support or information. UQ Allies, however, do not provide "expert" advice or counselling.
Once you are a UQ Ally, your role will be to provide a safe and welcoming space for staff and students who identify as sexually and gender diverse. You will become part of the Ally Network and be invited to participate in several Network Meetings and events throughout the year which help create an inclusive environment on campus for sexuality and gender diverse staff and students.
For information about how to enrol in this training session to become a UQ Ally, please see the Staff Development site here.
