At AUT we provide a safe, supportive, inclusive university environment that enables every student and staff member to freely express themselves and bring their unique selves to study and work. Naturally, this extends to our involvement within the rainbow community.
AUT is extremely proud to be the first tertiary provider in New Zealand to be awarded the Rainbow Tick. We remain one of the only universities to have a full-time role dedicated to rainbow student support. We strive to engage with students and staff, and support them while they’re at AUT, as well as being involved with various initiatives like Big Gay Out. Our connection with Big Gay Out over the 6 last years is a significant partnership that allows us to show our support and commitment to equality and diversity. It is an important event for all of our AUT whānau; It’s a time that celebrates and expresses our diverse community, and shows that no matter where you come from you will be supported and accepted at AUT.
At Chorus we’re all about making New Zealand better through world-class connectivity. It takes a diverse range of people, from all colours of the rainbow to imagine, develop, build and maintain Chorus’ fast and reliable fibre network.
Join Chorus at the 2021 Big Gay Out to learn more about the Chorus family, see why fibre is how we internet now and celebrate Valentine’s day by connecting with loved ones through our network.
At Kiwibank, we back Kiwis from all walks of life, and recognise and celebrate the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace. That’s why we’re excited to yet again be taking part in Big Gay Out, 2021, working alongside Ending HIV to build our relationship with and help support a great Kiwi organisation delivering great outcomes for the NZ Rainbow community.
Our LGBT+ people at work create, drive and set our D&I policies at work with the full support of our Executive team, and our Rainbow Tick accreditation and partnerships with Rainbow organisations like Ending HIV is just part our ongoing commitment to our LGBTQ+ people and customers to ensure we’re doing the right thing by them.
We look forward to seeing you there – and keep an eye out for our fabulous Kiwibank people on the day
MC is excited about formally supporting the Big Gay Out for the first time in 2021, and for at least the next five years.
For those who don’t know us, MC is a big, established law firm in Auckland and Wellington. For those who know us better, we’re also young and new.
MC began in 1921 as Office of the Crown Solicitor at Auckland, a role we still hold. From that foundation 100 years ago, we’ve changed in all sorts of ways. Today, we’re New Zealand’s biggest and most successful litigation firm, with a 250+ team working in 25+ practice areas, covering every area of the law. Our average age is 31 and our heritage means we emphasise public-sector and public-interest legal work.
As MC continues to grow, our intention is to ever-better reflect contemporary Tāmaki Makaurau and Aotearoa, including LGBTTIQ+ people and whānau and friends. Join us at our chill-out zone to learn more about who we are and what we do.
At Mai FM we have a proud history of celebrating our diverse audience. The Big Gay Out is an amazing opportunity for all corners of the community to come together, regardless of their gender, orientation, or heritage, and we love to play a part in that. Mai will be helping people put their pride on their sleeve - quite literally - by dishing out free glitter tattoos!
