Pride in Diversity’s annual Awards event recognises leaders, individuals and networks who’ve made a significant impact on LGBTQI inclusion in the workplace.

Many of our Mardi Gras partners were represented at the 2018 Australian LGBTI Inclusion Awards, including Qantas, ANZ, Woolworths and MinterEllison.

ANZ won the Media Campaign Award for its beautiful Hold Tight campaign during Mardi Gras, and ANZ’s Melissa Tandy won The Sally Webster Ally Award.

The Australian LGBTI Inclusion Awards grow every year – this time 135 employers across Australia participated, with over 700 business leaders, diversity champions, and professionals gather for the event.
