Monash Ally Network

The Ally Network at Monash promotes Monash as a safe and inclusive space for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender-diverse, intersex, queer and questioning, asexual and aromantic, plus other related identities (LGBTIQA+) students and staff. In 2021, Respectful Communities launched a LGBTIQA+ Ally training program delivered in-house, including a specific program for students, facilitated by students. At the end of 2021, 1654 staff and students had completed training since the network began, with 1080 registered allies across our Australian campuses. A further 160 staff completed Queer Connect training specifically for supporting LGBTIQA+ students.
