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
We welcome all to join us to share in discussion and exploration of our community's deeper and more challenging learnings from the last year.
Some of our colleagues have made significant progress with rainbow programmes, policies and practices, in some very challenging and diverse environments. What are others doing, how are they doing it and what are their learnings?
