Pride in Action Network

Celebrating diversity and an inclusive culture

Welcome! The Pride in Action Network is the University of Melbourne’s inaugural LGBTQIA+ ally network. We bring together staff and students who identify as LGBTQIA+, their allies and supporters, creating opportunities to share information and foster an inclusive and supportive workplace and learning environment.

Our aim is to work with network members and leadership to build and promote visibility of an inclusive culture where diversity is affirmed and celebrated – from the inside out. Find out more in our Terms of Reference, and get in touch if you have any questions.
