Nominations for VPS Pride Awards close soon


VPS Pride Network

Nominations are open for the Victorian Public Sector Pride Awards.

The awards recognise efforts to drive LGBTIQ inclusion in state government workplaces and the broader community. 

All public sector workers — including public school staff — can participate, but nominations close on 18 October.

Individuals, projects, or activities undertaken by a government agency or school can be nominated across six categories.

Recipients will receive their awards at a function held on 6 November at the Arts Centre Melbourne. The free event is an opportunity to network, socialise and celebrate the work of community members.
