The sun was shining on Sunday 6 May when several TaskForce staff, friends, family members and even furr babies participated in its second Melbourne Midsumma Pride March. The day was a fantastic celebration and demonstration of solidarity with all members of the LGBTIQA+ community that access our services and work within our teams. A big thank you to everyone who gave up their time to attend and represent TaskForce, with honourable mentions going to Amanda Mack for bringing the music and choregraphing a dance on the day, and Carolina for bringing her beautifully trained dogs which were a star attraction.
Although COVID-19 prevented more staff from being involved, we’re hopeful that will be less of a concern next year and look forward to seeing more TaskForce staff participating. The Diversity & Inclusion Working Group have already been discussing how to make it a bigger and better event next year.
