  • recognise the value of cultural intelligence that CALD staff contribute
  • identify and remove barriers ( such as cultural, social, organisational culture, psychological, bias etc) ¬†through education and awareness
  • champion the voice of CALD staff
  • promote a more inclusive work environment.
