nbn has a large and active LGBTQ network (nbn Pride) with over 1200 members. Pride is run by a passionate and dedicated volunteer committee comprised of a combination of those who identify as LGBTI and allies. Their goal is to create a safe workplace which connects, celebrates and supports the diversity and inclusion of our LGBTQ employees and their allies, and of the broader LGBTQ community​ and they work collaboratively with our other diversity network groups (for example on First Peoples, Accessibility and Cultural Identity) to recognise intersectionality and promote a total culture of inclusion at nbn.

The Pride group has the utmost support of the Executive as a whole, including through our highly visible Eexcutive Sponsor., and we haven taken part annually in the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) for the last 3 years, currently holding Bronze status. Examples of recent activity in this space include a recently held online event in support of Transgender Day of Remembrance and introducing 20 days of Gender Affirmation Leave as a provision within our existing Gender Affirmation Policy.
