WAYS TO CELEBRATE AT WORK

1. Go Rainbow

Start simple. Rally everyone to stand out against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia at work by wearing splash of rainbow for the day. Send out an email alert before hand and collect donations from staff.

Run an event, like a BBQ, morning tea, trivia night or after work drinks. Simple ideas are sometimes the best, and they're the most likely to get heaps of people involved.

3. Start A Project

Use IDAHOBIT as a way to to launch a project that supports sexual and gender diversity. It could be the formation of an LGBTI committee or announcing a plan to support the LGBTI community.

4. CEO Support

Ask your CEO to write a blog or article in support of LGBTI staff and customers with a commitment to how your organisation is supporting LGBTI diversity.

5. Shout It Proud

Use your networks to promote your involvement in the day. Share photos from your events on the day using the hashtag #IDAHOBIT and show the world why supporting LGBTI employees and consumers is so important.

6. Give a little

Use IDAHOBIT to add the Minus18 Foundation to your workplace giving programs, or organise a unique fundraiser to support LGBTI youth.
