ACON’s Pride Inclusion Programs

ACON’s Pride Inclusion Programs offer a range of services to assist with all aspects of LGBTQ inclusion.


Pride in Diversity is the national not-for-profit employer support program for LGBTQ workplace inclusion specialising in HR, organisational change and workplace diversity. Pride in Diversity publishes the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI), Australia’s national benchmarking instrument for LGBTQ workplace inclusion from which Top Employers for LGBTQ people is determined.


Pride in Sport is the only sporting inclusion program specifically designed to assist National and State sporting organisations and clubs with the inclusion of LGBTQ employees, players, coaches, volunteers and spectators. The world-first Pride in Sport Index (PSI) benchmarks and assesses the inclusion of LGBTQ people across all sporting contexts.


Pride in Health + Wellbeing is a national membership program that provides year-round support in the provision of LGBTQ inclusive services for those working within the health and wellbeing sector. Consider us your partners, your subject-matter experts that you can call on, build a relationship with and rely on for expert advice, training and help.

And if you're a larger organisation looking to become more inclusive in your service delivery, the Pride in Health + Wellbeing Training Deluxe Membership could be just the thing for you! The Deluxe Membership includes a licence to host Pride Training's eLearning on your own learning platform.


The Welcome Here Project supports businesses/organisations throughout NSW to create and promote environments that are visibly welcoming and inclusive of Lesbian, Gay, Bi, Trans, and Queer (LGBTQ) communities. Members of the project (registered Welcoming Places) receive a sticker to display in their window to let everyone know that LGBTQ diversity is welcomed and celebrated within their business. Registered Welcoming Places also display a charter that brings to life their commitment to the project, and what being a member is all about. There is a low cost to become a member of the project.
