As the State’s largest employer, we recognise the importance of strengthening diversity and inclusion across all agencies, and are committed to doing so.
Setting diversity and inclusion as a priority and leading the way to achieving greater outcomes are key to accomplishing our twin goals:
- workforce diversification: increasing the representation of people from different backgrounds at all levels across our sector
- workforce inclusion: ensuring all staff in the sector experience a sense of belonging and inclusion in the work environment.
Evidence shows that diversity and inclusion in the workforce are key to improving productivity and innovative thinking.
A diverse and inclusive workforce with an understanding of community needs and expectations can also respond better to a rapidly changing environment and ensure the best service is delivered.
The Commission is progressing a sector-wide workforce diversification and inclusion strategy and six action plans. These will include activities for agencies to support the achievement of the twin goals.
Collectively, we can make the sector a place where people from all walks of life are empowered to better serve the community.
