ALLY Network

ECU’s ALLY Network was established in 2008. An ALLY may or may not be LGBTIQ but they have a shared passion and commitment to promoting greater awareness of, and support for, LGBTIQ staff and students at ECU.

You can find an ALLY by our rainbow lanyards, pins, door signage and email signatures or from the ALLY Network Listing below.


What do ALLIES do?

An ALLY aims to help to support ECU in becoming an environment where all LGBTIQ staffs and students feel safe, supported and proud to be themselves.

ALLIES as asked to demonstrate a commitment to LGBTIQ inclusion in the best way they see fit. This could include completing LGBTIQ Awareness Training, becoming an active member of the ALLY Network, attending events like the annual Perth Pride Parade, wearing an ALLY lanyard/pin, placing an ALLY sign on your door, including your pronouns in your email signature and most importantly, challenging discriminatory language and behaviour when you see it.
