The organisers

Sapphire is an initiative of Pride in Diversity that was developed to generate greater awareness of the unique challenges faced LGBTIQ+ women in the workplace. The Sapphire initiative seeks to provide women with an opportunity to openly express and discuss some of these challenges in a safe, non-confrontational professional environment.

Out for Australia is a national not for profit that seeks to support and mentor aspiring LGBTIQ professionals. The CEO of Out for Australia, Emily Scott, currently lives in Tasmania with her partner. Out for Australia held their first Tasmania event in August called "Being LGBTIQ in the workplace" with the University of Tasmania Ally Network.
