Supporting Marriage Equality

The Florey proudly supports marriage equality and believes it’s a basic right that people, regardless of who they choose to love, should be recognised equally by law.

We celebrate and respect the diversity and individuality of every single person. Led by our values, we are open, inclusive and embrace diversity across our community.

We continue to build a culture of inclusion for all our people at the Florey and we are committed to embracing differences and providing opportunities for all.

We ask everyone to be respectful as this public debate continues and consider the health and wellbeing of every member of our community.

Every person deserves to feel safe and appreciated – and any disrespect shown will not be tolerated by our institute.  

Supporting marriage equality is about being inclusive, but it’s also about being courageous.

Together we should support each other as we play a proud part in shaping the best possible community for all.
