Pride in Sport winners
Melbourne University Sport (MU Sport) has been awarded the highest honour for LGBTQIA+ initiatives in Australian sport at the 2020 Australian Pride in Sport Awards.
The award is based on the results of Aids Council of New South Wales’s (ACON) Pride in Sport Index (PSI) – an initiative of the Australian Human Rights Commission and the Australian Sports Commission – is an independently administered benchmarking system used to assess LGBTQIA+ inclusion practices within Australian sporting organisations.
MU Sport achieved a gold tier PSI result this year, up from silver in 2019 when they shared the highest honour with Tennis Australia. The improvement in overall ranking has also seen MU Sport awarded the Most Improved Sporting Organisation Award.
