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 in Sydney on Wednesday 30th of March 2022.

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.

Tickets will go on sale in January, with an option of livestream tickets available for those unable to attend in person.

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

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