WHGNE this year took its first steps along the path to Rainbow Tick accreditation.
The Rainbow Tick is an accreditation program for organisations that are committed to safe and inclusive practice for the LGBTIQ community.
The HOW2 Program, an initiative of Rainbow Health Victoria helps organisations embed these practices within their workplaces and services, creating lasting cultural change.
As the first step in the WHGNE Rainbow Tick journey, staff attended a series of training sessions designed around the six national standards that make up the Rainbow Tick. The learnings from these workshops allowed WHGNE to begin to develop, implement and plan for inclusive practice.
WHGNE is committed to the ongoing Rainbow Tick journey and showing commitment to LBTIQ consumers and staff that it is a safe, inclusive and affirming service.
