Supporting Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Queer or Asexual (LGBTIQA+) staff

We foster a culture where employees with diverse sexuality and/or genders feel:

  • respected
  • valued
  • empowered 
  • safe to be themselves to the workplace.

We support the visibility and representation of the LGBTIQA+ people in the Department and the broader community. 

Support for LGBTIQA+ staff

We have a staff-driven committee and network for employees who identify as LGBTIQA+ and allies. We have a LGBTIQA+ Champion who advocates on behalf of the committee and staff. 

Our Pride Committee and Champions: 

  • build our Pride ally base
  • look for opportunities for the committee to input LGBTIQA+ focus into our work
  • act as a sounding board for staff
  • increase LGBTIQA+ visibility in the Department
  • identify and address any barriers
  • call out unacceptable behaviours.

We are proud to be a member of Pride in Diversity

We also take part in the annual Australian Workplace Equality Index, a national benchmark for LGBTIQA+ workplace inclusion and are awarded Bronze Employer of Choice status.
