Diversity and inclusion

The Office values a diverse representative workforce and strives to foster an inclusive workplace. The Office’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategy provides an overarching framework and targeted action plans to ensure we value and respect the diversity of our employees, stakeholders and partners.

Actions taken in 2018–19 revolved around the themes of recruitment, cultural competence and retention and engagement of diverse groups. Recruitment initiatives included affirmative measure disability and indigenous rounds and indigenous graduate recruitment. Cultural competence and diversity training was mandated for all existing and new staff through the use of e-learning and face to face training. Retention and engagement with various diversity groups was encouraged through the establishment of diversity employee networks, exploration of mentoring programs and the celebration of important cultural events such as NAIDOC week.
