  1. Your content must relate to LGBTI Inclusion either within the workplace, Australian sport or inclusive health and human services provision. Your proposal will have a strong chance of acceptance if it directly related to diversity and inclusion for LGBTI people.
  2. Present new content- consider presenting a session on something that has not previously been offered at the Pride in Practice Conference. If you choose to submit a previous proposal, please ensure that the proposal is current and up to date.
  3. Include presenters from multiple organisations. The strongest sessions include voices and perspectives from more than one company. Consider inviting colleagues at other organisations to join you in leading the session.
