2022 Australian Pride in Health + Wellbeing Awards

Join us for this inaugural event!

We are thrilled to announce that the inaugural Australian Pride in Health + Wellbeing Awards will be held online via Livestream on Wednesday 30th of March 2022.

This event will be hosted by Mon Schafter, Walkley Award-winning journalist and presenter, and Board Director of Twenty10, and will feature a keynote from Victorian Commissioner for LGBTIQ+ Communities Todd Fernando, and Board Director of ACON and Co-Founder of GenderQ Dr Atari Metcalf, as well as the much-anticipated award ceremony.

This event recognises the achievements across the health, wellbeing, human services, and community care sector, measured through the Health + Wellbeing Equality Index (HWEI). Previously we had celebrated with Pride in Diversity at the Australian LGBTQ Inclusion Awards, but we are now celebrating separately.

Celebrating best practice, innovation and person-centred care, awards will be given to the Gold Service Providers, Most Improved Service Provider, and the much anticipated, Service Provider of the Year.

We will also debut our individual awards, HWEI Health Ally Award, HWEI Out Role-Model Award, and the HWEI Health Innovation Award.

Given the current COVID-19 situation, this year’s event will be held exclusively as a Livestream event, with tickets on sale now.

For more information please monitor our website, and be sure to join our mailing lists for further updates!

HWEI Health Innovation Award

This nomination celebrates the innovation we see in LGBTQ inclusion initiatives across the sector.

Due to the wide variety of services and organisational size, innovation is often required to ensure LGBTQ inclusion is appropriate to the industry, region, and client cohort.
