This index was developed on the back of the outstanding success of the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI). The AWEI was instrumental in measuring, benchmarking and successfully shifting practice in LGBTQ workplace inclusion; this new index is expected to be instrumental in annually measuring and shifting practice within health, wellbeing and human services.

Participation will provide service providers not only with clear guidelines in terms of getting started, a reportable gap analysis of their current practice or results can be used for progressing work in LGBTQ-inclusive service provision. It also allows Pride in Health + Wellbeing to showcase examples of best practice from within the submitting organisations.

Share your participation in this year’s HWEI and encourage more organisations to also join in by sharing our HWEI banners in your newsletter, social media, emails and online.
