Curtin Allies

Curtin’s Ally program has been running since 2006 and our Allies contribute to an inclusive and supportive environment at Curtin.

Our LGBTIQ+ Awareness Training is designed to raise awareness and understanding of contemporary challenges and barriers faced by LGBTIQ+ people. Once students or staff have completed the training, they can become a Curtin Ally.
