LGBTQ+ at NSW Government
We’re committed to making sure our workplaces are safe, inclusive, and welcoming for everyone. If you identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, and asexual (LGBTIQA+), we want you to feel supported to bring your whole and true self to work in the NSW Government Graduate Program and throughout your government career.
As a NSW Government graduate, you are welcome to join our Graduate Pride Network, whether you identify as part of the LGBTIQA+ community or as an ally. This is an inter-agency professional network where LGBTIQA+ graduates and their allies can come together to find support and connect with their peers. The Graduate Pride Network hosts events and can help with sourcing mentors for graduates.
The Graduate Pride Network is affiliated with Pride in NSW, the NSW public sector network for LGBTIQA+ employees and their allies. As a Pride in NSW member, you will have opportunities to socialise and meet other members, collaborate on LGBTIQA+ work, learn about all parts of the community and hear from leaders and experts on issues that impact LGBTIQA+ staff.
As a graduate and throughout your government career, you can reach out to the Pride in NSW team anytime you’d like a little extra support, or any LGBTIQA+ resources. They’re available to ensure you are never on your own – there are rainbows all around you.
