In 2023, WorldPride was an important (and fun!) way for RPS to celebrate LGBTQIA+ people, identity and community. But it was also a valuable opportunity to confront the discrimination issues that LGBTQIA+ people still face.
It was a topic that a passionate team of RPS delegates tackled head-on while representing the firm at the WorldPride Human Rights Conference in Sydney this month.
The conference was a core event on the WorldPride 2023 calendar, and included speeches, panels, roundtables, workshops and performances. It was billed as “the largest convergence of human rights defenders, community members, government and political representatives, philanthropists and corporate leaders committed to LGBTQIA+ rights ever held in Asia Pacific.”
The insights gained by our delegates will help RPS shape inclusiveness across our work practices and shape the design and delivery of our projects.
Here’s a snapshot of our delegation’s highlights and key takeaways from the event.
RPS champions diversity, equity, inclusion
RPS prides itself on providing a supportive and inclusive workplace for all people, and equity and inclusion for LGBTQIA+ people is a big part of this. Shaped by our people and led by our LGBTQIA+ Working Group, events, fundraising and activities focused on diversity is something we participate in regularly as a team.
