GLOBE is a not-for-profit Community Organisation that unites Victorian LGBTIQ+ professionals and Small Businesses through social, professional networking, training and development focused events.
In its 27th year, GLOBE continues to move from strength to strength in its mandate to assist the growth of Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ community through creating strong connections for professionals and Small Business owners.
In addition to our much-loved monthly networking events, where we provide like-minded people with a space to forge long lasting connections, GLOBE also provides value to the LGBTIQ+ community through:
Our Focus on Women program, featuring different topics of discussion and aims to provide a platform for different people within our community to engage with GLOBE members.
Our, GLOBE Growth development programs, where in partnership with our corporate members, we’ve designed a series of professional development sessions accessible to all. As well as an additional series of sessions designed specifically for the development and growth of LGBTIQ+ owned Small Businesses.
GLOBE Community Awards program
The awards, in partnership with the Victorian Government, celebrate achievement in Victoria’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex communities.
The awards highlight the work of a diverse range of organisations that benefit or unite the LGBTIQ+ community and highlight the outstanding work and contribution of individuals in our community.
The awards began in 2014 and have become an integral part of the Victorian LGBTIQ+ community; recognising the inspiring people and organisations that work to benefit LGBTI people.
To date, we have awarded 54 Victorian individuals and organisations

Through our GLOBE Community Grants programme, GLOBE has a long and proud tradition of providing financial support to Victoria’s LGBTIQ+ individuals, students and organisations.
Over our 27 year history, GLOBE has donated well over $500,000.
Our 2019 Community Grants programme was our largest to date, where we awarded grants and scholarships totalling $34,000. We look forward to continued growth of this program throughout 2020.
