Your Inclusion Building Partner

I’ll show you how I can work with you to change your business and make it more inclusive.

Our Mission

At The Equality Network, we understand that building a workplace culture of diversity and inclusion is not just a ‘tick the box’ exercise. It’s an ongoing commitment to creating a workplace where every individual – including those from the LGBTIQA+ community – feels valued, respected, and heard.

Our consulting services are tailored to meet the unique needs of workplaces across Australia. Check out how we can help your workplace shift its inclusion needle – working with a qualified professional who has lived experience as a member of the LGBTIQA+ community.

At The Equality Network, we’re committed to helping workplaces in Australia not just comply with the diversity and inclusion requirements of legislation and regulations, but exceed them. 

We know that inclusion training plays an important role in increasing the level of inclusion in workplaces. But we also know that inclusion training – by itself – is not enough to ensure your workplace continues to improve its inclusivity, year on year. 

Our tailored approach ensures that your workplace thrives by implementing a range of ongoing inclusion-building strategies and by embracing the richness of diversity. 

Let’s build a more rainbow-coloured future together. Contact us today to start your journey towards a more inclusive and diverse workplace.
