LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion at Burdekin

International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) celebrates LGBTQIA+ people globally and raises awareness for the work still needed to overcome LGBTQIA+ discrimination.

Did you know that Monday May 17th marked 30 years of IDAHOBIT?

30 years ago – on May 17, 1990 – the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from the Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems.

Here at Burdekin, we’re lucky enough to have an incredible, diverse, and accepting workforce. So, we stood together to celebrate, support, and show our pride of the colourful LGBTQIA+ diversity of our workplace by sharing a meal and a delicious rainbow cake!

Here are some snaps from the day! Big thanks to everyone who helped out, especially Matt for cooking up a fantastic feed!

Annual Charity Golf Day 2020 photos. See what it was all about!

Charity Golf NSW

Despite the shut downs, cancellations and world events of late, we were thrilled to host our Annual Charity Golf Event at Cromer Golf Club in Sydney – this time on the 8th of September instead of the usual May date.

The event was a sell-out.

Thanks to new and old partners and friends (and maybe a little bit due to COVID-19 social distancing rules) we sold out this year. We welcomed back many of our old friends, made some new friends and enjoyed plenty of friendly rivalry. Guests enjoyed mingling with some of the Manly Sea Eagles and Manly Warringah District Cricket Club players. And all for a good cause.

Take a look at the action in our photos from the day
