Welcome to Pride in Diversity

Pride in Diversity is Australia’s first and only not-for-profit workplace program designed specifically to assist Australian employers with the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) employees.  

As a member-based program, Pride in Diversity works closely with HR, diversity professionals and LGBTI Network Leaders in all aspects of LGBTI equality and within all sectors of the Australian workforce. No matter your starting point, we work with your team to understand the importance of LGBTI inclusion and to map out a strategy that will enable you to successfully work towards best practice. Drawing from extensive experience in organisational development, diversity practice and the implementation of LGBTI related initiatives within the workplace, Pride in Diversity brings with it years of both practical experience and know-how.
