ECU is committed to providing an inclusive working and learning environment that is free from harassment and discrimination. The ALLY Network aims to create a more diverse and inclusive culture by promoting greater awareness of and support for, gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex (GLBTI) staff and students.
An ALLY is simply a person who is informed about, is sensitive toward and has an understanding of GLBTI people and their issues. An ALLY affirms the experience and rights of GLBTI persons and chooses to challenge the homophobic and heterosexist values of others in a variety of ways including by individual example and personal awareness.
ALLIES are not identified as being heterosexual or GLBTI but are representative of the entire ECU community.
For more information on available ALLIES, download the ALLY contact list or contact the Planning, Quality and Equity Service Centre.
