This year’s luncheon on the 19th of October, will be hosted by SBS World News presenter Ricardo Goncalves and feature the winner of The Voice 2016, singer/songwriter Alfie Arcuri. The event will once again overlook the stunning sights of Darling Harbour in the ballroom of The Hyatt Regency, Sydney.

The event is recognised in both LGBTQ and mainstream media, in addition to being widely shared across corporate and personal social media platforms. It is attended by CEOs, dignitaries, senior executives, HR and diversity practitioners, employee network leaders and members of LGBTQ employee networks and allies. The 2019 event was also attended by more than 10 media representatives in addition to being covered by and featured on SBS World News.
