Welcome to the New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards: celebrating workplace leadership, innovation, best practice and collaboration.
Our annual awards programme brings all organisations who aspire to improve the work-place experience of "rainbow" people together to showcase best practice and celebrate outstanding progress as we continue to strive towards a more inclusive community of workplaces in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards and the Development Forum were rolled into a single event for 2020 and were rescheduled for 9 October 2020 after a few venue reshuffles due to Covid 20 alert level changes.

Dates and entry instructions for the 2021 awards will be announced in early 2021
The New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards is designed to bring current and aspiring Rainbow Tick organisations together to learn, share and celebrate rainbow inclusion practices across New Zealand.
There are a range of award categories, structured to capture some of the depth and breadth of progress being made by our colleagues across a wide range of organisations and industries.
The awards are judged by some of New Zealand's leading rainbow inclusion experts and will provide useful insights for all of us to learn from and contribute to.Go to The New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards
