We value diversity
We value the diverse experiences and contributions our colleagues bring to the workplace. Acknowledging and celebrating our diverse abilities and backgrounds contributes to a productive and high-performing work culture.
Reconciliation Action Plan
Our inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan 2020-2022 (RAP) was released in November 2020. The RAP provides a structured, nationally recognised model that formalises our commitment to reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. The RAP enhances enables to make valuable contributions to reconciliation in Australia and to foster a workforce that better reflects the diversity of the Australian community.
The unique artwork on our RAP was designed by De Greer-Yindimincarlie, a Wiradjuri woman from central western New South Wales and the owner of Yindi Artz - Authentic Aboriginal Creations.
