Pride in Diversity • Pride in Sport • Pride in Health + Wellbeing Communication
ACON is Australia’s largest not-for-profit health organisation for people of diverse sexualities and genders. We are a fiercely proud community organisation, and our first priority will always be the health and safety of those we engage with: our colleagues, members, event attendees and all event partners.
As a result of Prime Minister Morrison’s weekend announcement on the cancellation of events with over 500 attendees and the need to seriously consider any other non-essential events or gatherings alongside social distancing protocols, we would like to inform you of the precautionary steps that we have taken to protect the health and safety of all.
Welcome to ACON’s Pride Inclusion Programs
ACON’s Pride Inclusion Programs offer a range of services to assist employers, sporting organisations and service providers with all aspects of LGBTQ inclusion.
Pride in Diversity is the national not-for-profit employer support program for LGBTQ workplace inclusion specialising in HR, organisational change and workplace diversity. Pride in Diversity publishes the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI), Australia’s national benchmarking instrument for LGBTQ workplace inclusion from which Top Employers for LGBTQ people is determined.
Pride in Sport is the only sporting inclusion program specifically designed to assist National and State sporting organisations and clubs with the inclusion of LGBTQ employees, players, coaches, volunteers and spectators. The world-first Pride in Sport Index (PSI) benchmarks and assesses the inclusion of LGBTQ people across all sporting contexts.
Pride in Health + Wellbeing is a national membership program that provides year-round support in the provision of LGBT inclusive services for those working within the health and wellbeing sector. Consider us your partners, your subject-matter experts that you can call on, build a relationship with and rely on for expert advice, training and help.
Pride Inclusion Programs are social inclusion initiatives of ACON. ACON was established in 1985 as the AIDS Council of NSW and is now Australia’s largest HIV prevention, HIV support and LGBTQ health organisation. An important part of ACON’s mission is to help make the places where our community members live, work, study and play more inclusive of LGBTQ people, improving the mental health and wellbeing of our community through the reduction of stigma, discrimination and social exclusion.
