Diversity and Inclusion
The department recognises that diversity and inclusion is about utilising all the different talents, experiences and perspectives that people bring to the workplace, and valuing and respecting those differences so that everyone can bring their best to work and reach their potential.

We have launched our two-year ‘Innovate’ Reconciliation Action Plan (2020 – 2022,) which focuses on strengthening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples whilst engaging staff and stakeholders in reconciliation. Download Reconciliation Action Plan
