Happy Pride Month!

We are finally here! It’s June and it’s Pride month! The month of June was chosen for “LGBTIAQ+” Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognise the impact LGBTIAQ+ people have had in the world. While festivals may be cancelled this year, that doesn't mean we need to lose the spirit of PRIDE this month! Here is a list of the online festivities for you to join and share with your network:


We can still be proud and supportive of members of the wider queer community and people with diverse gender and sexuality even without the grand celebrations we have come to expect with PRIDE usually. To download your “Welcome Here” toolkits, visit the Welcome Here Project website.

LGBTI Inclusive Practice Webinar

LGBT Aged Care Inclusive Practice Webinar – 20% OFF!

How good is it to attend a training that hosts up to 48 of your colleagues and still comply with social distancing advices? As we are wrapping up the 2019 – 2020 financial year, we are offering 20% discount on our trainings including our Aged Care Inclusive Practice training.

From 01 July 2019, the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission expects that organisations providing aged care services in Australia will comply with new Aged Care Quality Standards (Quality Standards). Among other key points, “Providing education and training to staff at every level of the organisation, including the governing body, which includes a specific understanding of the different lived experiences within and amongst L, G, B, T & I peoples” is a foundation step within the new Action Plan to support Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and gender diverse, and Intersex elders.

Through this 6-hour training you will take our LGBTI Awareness eLearning as the pre-requisite of the live webinars, and then attend 2 webinars, each for 2.5 hours. Certificate of attendance will be provided for those who complete their learning pathway. Interested? Click on the link below and let us know.

Online Training

Online Training Never Looked This Good!

With all the new changes that we have been experiencing in our community, we got the chance to see opportunities that were less given a chance. Digital online training has been one of them.

At ACON Pride Training, we have come to believe in all those good reasons as well. As we have less time to socialise, we get to focus more on our personal and professional growth.

Nothing is better than studying on a flexible schedule and choosing how your classroom would look like. And let’s not even start talking about how much they cost less. You get to decide on your own discipline and most importantly you get to choose your course topics! Check out the 5 benefits to online training.

We are blending our eLearning and hosting live training online so we can continue to deliver Inclusive Practice and LGBT Inclusive Practice Aged Care training. If you need to book training for your team or organisation, fill out the request form and we will contact you about potential training solutions we can provide. Let us know your training goals and our team will get in touch with you. And don't forget about our amazing BULK VOLUME PURCHASE DISCOUNTS!
