Sapphire Inspire Award for LGBTQ Women

This submission acknowledges the additional challenges faced by LGBTQ people who are or may be perceived as women. The award seeks to recognise the work done to help remove barriers for under-represented genders by an LGBTQ person who is or may be perceived as a woman in the workplace, and is comfortable being identified as such and included in a space that centres the experiences of women.

Nominees should be seen as a role model in this space, advocating for the advancement of under-represented genders, and working toward making structural and cultural change within their organisations to improve gender inequities within Pride networks and industries.
