BETTER TOGETHER CONFERENCE
Better Together is our national conference. In order to facilitate a conversation about LGBTIQ rights in Australia we need to have a platform to share our ideas and experiences and ask the hard questions about how we can move forward and tackle what's important.
Better Together is a space for our voices to be heard.
The conference aims to explore current issues facing the LGBTIQ movement, bringing together voices from indigenous communities, people with a disability, the Deaf community, as well as multicultural and multi-faith communities.
Our goal is to create a truly intersectional discussion about achieving meaningful social change to create a fairer, more equal and more just Australia.
The Equality Project also runs training sessions through the Leadership Training Academy to help develop the capacity and skills of emerging leaders in the Australian LGBTIQ community.
Our inaugural conference, Better Together 2018, was held at the Melbourne Town Hall from 13-14 January 2018. It was attended by over 650 people from every state as well as a number of delegates from the US, UK and the Philippines.
We are excited to announce that our next national conference, #BetterTogether2019, will be held in Sydney from 11-12 January 2019. Details to come. Please subscribe below for updates regarding our upcoming events.
