The ALLY network aims to create a more diverse and inclusive culture by promoting greater awareness of, and support for, LGBTIQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Intersex, Queer and/or Questioning) staff and students at ECU.
ALLIES are sensitive toward and have an understanding of LGBTIQ people and matters that are relevant to them. An ALLY affirms the experiences and rights of LGBTIQ people and chooses to challenge discriminatory behaviours in a variety of ways including by individual example and personal awareness.
ALLYs are not identified as being heterosexual or LGBTIQ and represent the entire ECU community.
