Griffith Ally Network
The Griffith Ally Network comprises Griffith staff and students who support and affirm the experiences of people who identify as LGBTIQ+ at Griffith. This network is lead by the Griffith Pride Committee.
What is a Griffith Ally?
The role of an Ally is to:
- visibly support LGBTIQ+ inclusion by promoting and participating in Pride events, utilising Pride merchandise and identifying themselves as an Ally within their networks;
- provide a confidential and safe environment for people to make enquiries about issues related to the diversities of sex, sexualities and genders;
- make appropriate referrals should someone seek support;
- call out (where safe to) inappropriate anti-LGBTIQ+ behaviour;
- commits to ongoing personal education on the experiences of the LGBTIQ+ community; and
- actively encourage and contribute to the aims of Griffith's equity, diversity and inclusion goals, including actions within the Pride Strategy .
Griffith Ally Reference Guide
To support your role as an LGBTIQ+ Ally we have developed a Griffith Ally reference guide. This includes information on strategic commitments, inclusive language and practical ways you can support LGBTIQ+ staff and students.
