The NCA’s Workplace Diversity Plan provides a framework to support its goals and principles of equity and diversity in the workplace. Its key objectives are to:

  • promote awareness of workplace diversity within the NCA
  • develop and maintain a highly skilled, diverse and effective workforce, where all employees are valued, encouraged and provided with opportunities to develop their potential
  • develop a supportive workplace culture that allows staff members to balance their work and personal life
  • provide a discrimination and harassment-free workplace
  • embrace workplace diversity principles in recruitment and selection processes.
