About the Glenn Pickett Sunflower Award

The Glenn Pickett Sunflower Award is an annual celebration of individuals who have demonstrated ‘gentle leadership’ qualities. It’s awarded in the honour of Glenn Pickett, a Lorikeet member and Mental Illness Fellowship of WA (MIFWA) Board member who passed away in September 2019.

The Glenn Pickett Sunflower Award recognises and rewards the achievements of Lorikeet members and MIFWA employees as they embody MIFWA’s values, including accountability, integrity, inclusion and acceptance, collaboration, and empowerment.

Help us identify the individuals who demonstrate these qualities and deserve these awards.
