The 2020 New Zealand Rainbow Excellence Awards, held on 9 October, celebrated organisations around the country who are leading the way in creating safe and inclusive workplaces for our Rainbow communities.
The annual Awards brings together organisations striving to improve diversity and inclusion for all LGBTTQI+ people and celebrates the progress and achievements being made across New Zealand.

- SkyCity Community and Advocacy Award, in recognition of our outward public commitment to community groups
- Grant Thornton Innovation Award, in recognition of our willingness to try and adapt something new and bold to the unique needs of the council.
