Please join us in becoming a more inclusive community
The Pride Pledge is an initiative to increase visibility, inclusion and safety for LGBTTQ+ people in our community. Now is the time to make that tolerance visible and to celebrate our pride as an inclusive community.
If you are committed to the following ideals, then taking the pledge is for you.
All LGBTTQ+ people should have the freedom to be safe, healthy and visible. We will use our voice and influence to support visibility, safety, tolerance, love, diversity and inclusion of all LGBTTQ+ people.
All individual pledge-takers' names will be displayed on the website. By taking this pledge you are giving us permission to proudly show your name on our website alongside all other pledge-takers' names. Organisations who subscribe and take the pledge will have their logo and name displayed.
We are taking subscriptions for 2021 now. We process all new subscribers in November for the following year.
Subscriptions are used to support our work with Roll Out The Rainbow, vairiouss events during Auckland's Pride season, Winter Pride, The New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards and workplace Rainbow 101 trianing as well as advocacy for our communities.
Although the Pride Pledge tries to be inclusive of all organisations who genuinely want to engage with our values, we do (from time to time) become aware of specific organisations who may have a little more work to do before they can truely say that they are making a real effort to create a safe, inclusive and visibile space for LGBTTQ+ people. If this is the case, we will inform the organisation of the any issues and work with them to develop a plan to change the exprience in their organisation before they can become official supporters. Remedies could include a diagnostic of the issue, training and required changes in policy and practice, depending on the organisation and the issues raised.
