The Ally network has been introduced to Monash to support social inclusion on our campuses.

 

It promotes Monash as a safe space for individuals who might be lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex or queer (LGBTIQ) to talk openly about sexuality and gender identity without the threat of judgement, discrimination or prejudice.

 

Ally network

 

Monash supports the Australian Human Rights Commission's Racism. It Stops with Me campaign.

 

We have pledged to undertake awareness-raising activities over the next three years in support of the campaign including facilitating Courageous Conversations about Race workshops for students and staff.

 

Download the Everyday Racism App developed by All Together Now which takes players on a journey to better understand racism by walking in the shoes of someone else for seven days.
