Townsville - Wear it Purple

2015 08 13 Wear it purple

Over the last year, many of our members have raised the challenges of ensuring the LGBTI inclusion initiatives reach their regional and remote employees. The 2018 AWEI underscored the importance of this focus, by highlighting lower levels of inclusion and significantly higher levels of bullying and harassment in workplaces in regional Australia.

With this in mind, and as part of our Regional Reach strategic initiative, Pride in Diversity is launching the first of a series of regional cross-member programs. The program is a combination of training, discussion and networking. At the request of our members, this will be held in Townsville on the 30th and 31st August (to coincide with Wear It Purple Day). James Cook University has kindly offered to co-host much of the program.

We realise many of our members have employee locations in Townsville and we would appreciate those of you who do, to proactively distribute the flyer [click here to download] to your management on the ground, encouraging their teams’ participation, irrespective of whether they are executives, management or professional employees. Many Federal and Queensland Government department agencies, as well as national private sector organisations, have indicated their support and engagement. It would be wonderful to see a broad cohort of members represented at the various events included in the program.

We will hold a similar program in Geelong on the 25th September. If these prove effective, we will expand into other locations across Australia, with our members, for our members.

All Townsville events are free, but bookings are essential!
