We are very pleased to offer LGBTI Ally training delivered by Pride in Diversity this March to help raise awareness and understanding of the important role that Allies play for our LGBTQ+ community.

We also acknowledge that Mardi Gras occurs on Saturday 6th March. We hope that this Ally training will assist you in supporting any family or peers participating in the march or Mardi Gras festival period 19th February to 7th March.


The aim of this session is to build on the concepts covered in LGBTQ Awareness. This session will provide participants with an understanding of the role that non-LGBTQ allies play in creating cultural change within an organisation, and it provides a hands on and practical ‘how to’ be an Ally for LGBTQ employees.
