Partnering for a cause

Our Partners

At Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras (SGLMG), our partnerships are vitally important to us, and we value the active engagement of our partners with our LGBTQIA+ communities. Our partnerships enable us to hold more events, make our events more accessible and allow us to pay our staff, artists, and creatives. 

All partners of SGLMG must align with our values and be approved through our Ethical Charter Framework. 

SGLMG at its core aims to promote and advocate for all LGBTQIA+ human rights, equality, and inclusion across the nation. This value informs all our work, including our partnership agreements. 

We look to our values and ethical charter when we are considering a potential partner, and we expect those partners to meet us and maintain this ethical standard and values alignment. 

All our partners must show an ongoing commitment to our LGBTQIA+ communities within their organisation and externally within the broader community. 

A meaningful and authentic commitment to LGBTQIA+ equality and inclusion cannot be viewed through a siloed lens that excludes other human rights and equality issues, our ethical charter and framework relating to partners reflects this and speaks to the partners commitment to the wide spectrum of human rights, social justice, and equality causes.

Our Ethical Charter

Our promises

Our promises bring to life our values and principles, explaining how these are to be lived in relation to our stakeholder communities.

Living our promises

Through the questions we ask and the information we collect we assess the degree of alignment of each partner’s values with those of our own.

Alignment with values

Partner alignment with values. We live our promises through the actions we take, and our three key focus areas support our role in promoting visibility and the rights of LGBTQIA+ people globally.

Openness and Transparency

The purpose of our shared Ethical Charter is to serve as a compass for our people to make decisions that are aligned with our vision, values, principles and promises. Decisions we can feel confident about.
