Pride in Diversity

Dawn Hough is Director at Pride in Diversity, Australia's first and only (national) not-for-profit employer support program for all aspects of LGBTI Inclusion. In this role Dawn was instrumental in the development of the program offerings and the development of the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI), Australia's definitive benchmark on LGBTI workplace inclusion (and the Top 20 Employers for LGBTI employees awards). Dawn has authored four LGBTI workplace publications and been the producer of the annual Pride in Practice LGBTI workplace conference for the last three years.

Previously Dawn introduced and managed the Diversity function for ING Australia, heading up a team of 8 responsible for L&D, Talent Management, Organisational Development and Wellbeing. During this time she was responsible for the alignment of Australian practice to global strategy, implementation of executive targets, gender initiatives, flexibility and the launch of INGA’s LGBTI employee network, one of the most successful diversity initiatives and fastest growing employee networks at the time.

Prior to INGA, Dawn ran a boutique consultancy for 14 years consulting in organisational development, leadership development, L&D and training. She has worked on projects in the UK, Amsterdam, Singapore and speaks regularly on LGBTI inclusion nationally in Australia, at Out & Equal's Conference in the United States and Stonewalls Diversity Champions Conference UK (2013).
