EmployableQ

 

About the National LGBTI Health Alliance: 

The National LGBTI Health Alliance (the Alliance) is the national peak health organisation in Australia for organisations and individuals that provide health-related programs, services and research focused on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people (LGBTI) and other sexuality, gender, and bodily diverse people and communities. As the national peak body for LGBTI health in Australia, our mission is to provide a national focus to improve health outcomes for LGBTI people through policy, advocacy, representation, research evidence, and capacity building. 

Purpose of the Roundtable:  

The National LGBTI Health Alliance is undertaking a project funded through NDIS via the Information, Linkages and Capacity Building (ILC) Economic Community Participation Disability Grant. The aim of this project is to produce resources for employers within the LGBTI+ sector to promote the hiring of LGBTI+ people with disability.  

The purpose of the Roundtable is to seek insight from the lived experiences of LGBTI+ people with disability to inform better employment practices around hiring LGBTI+ people with disability amongst The Alliance’s membership. 

We will be asking you about the roles that you are seeking to become employed in as well as what you might need to access these employment opportunities.  

The insights gained from thRoundtable will inform the development of a report with a series of recommendations to the LGBTI+ sector in relation to the employment of people with disability. These insights will also inform the production of an employer toolkit which will include policy templates, tip sheets, and good practice examples.  

Selection Criteria:  

We are hoping to hear from people from the following demographic groups:  

  • Rural and urban geographic locations 
  • Diverse gender identities 
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse
