A key element of Challenger’s Diversity & Inclusion Strategy is to provide a diverse and inclusive workplace where differences are valued, and employees have a strong sense of belonging. In late 2019, Challenger established four employee-led diversity networks to provide a voice for employees and to encourage everyone to bring their whole self to work.
Last Friday, our newly established LGBTQI+ employee diversity network, Together@Challenger, held an event to celebrate their official launch on the occasion of the 2020 Mardi Gras Festival.

With a vision of becoming an employer of choice for LGBTQI+ employees, Together@Challenger is focused on:
- Fostering a culture of LGBTQI+ understanding and inclusion;
- Building external awareness of Challenger’s commitment to LGBTQI+ inclusion; and
- Contributing to achieving positive LGBTQI+ outcomes outside Challenger.
Following presentations from Travis Hughes, Together@Challenger leader and Michelle Taylor, Chief Executive People Corporate Affairs and Sustainability, the energy in the room was electric, with Together@Challenger members and employees alike, already counting down to Mardi Gras 2021!
