ARC Centre of Excellence Pride Network launched

A community for LGBTIQA+ folks working with ARC Centres of Excellence

We are delighted to announce the beginning of an ARC Centre of Excellence Pride Network. The network aims to support LGBTIQA+ folk working in research and higher education by providing a forum for conversation and networking that enables community-building and collaboration. This will be a space for discussing highlights and challenges, sharing advice and resources, and planning projects. The network will be convened by Dr Tara Roberson (Digital Child) and Mathew Warren (ADM+S). Communication will occur via email and Slack.

Current projects include:

  • Providing feedback on Australian Research Council gender diversity reporting
  • Promoting best practice in travel systems within universities
  • Ensuring LGBTIQA+ matters are front of mind for research and initiative planning (e.g. safety when travelling for international conferences)

We hope you’ll join us in making this network a safe and productive place for all involved.
