WAYS TO CELEBRATE AT WORK

1. Go Rainbow

Start simple. Rally everyone to stand out against queerphobia at work by wearing splash of rainbow for the day, or adding a rainbow backdrop to your morning online meeting. Send out an email alert beforehand and set up a team fundraiser.

2. Run an Event

Run an event, even if it's online! Rainbow morning meeting, an email newsletter with messages – simple ideas are sometimes the best, and most likely to get 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 LGBTIQ committee or announcing a plan to support the LGBTIQ community.

4. CEO Support

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