Inclusion and diversity

Inclusion and Diversity Framework

The Inclusion and Diversity Framework (PDF 3MB) sets out the Agency’s commitment for all our staff, including the following diversity groups:

  • People with disability
  • Gender equality and families
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Mature age and inter-generational workforce
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, asexual plus people.

We want everyone who works at, or comes into contact with, the Agency to feel valued. 

We’re proud to be an inclusive workplace, where everyone feels connected, included and able to bring their whole selves to work.

Senior Executive Service (SES) Inclusion and Diversity Champions

The Agency has created SES Champion roles to boost inclusion for all diversity groups.

Champions sponsor, support and promote activities to improve visibility and acceptance for different diversity groups. 

Champions help show strong leadership around inclusion and diversity.

The Agency has a Disability Champion, Indigenous Champion and an LGBTIQA+ Champion. We will add Champions as we create new inclusion plans.

NDIA employee networks exist to create an open and inclusive workplace culture where diversity is acknowledged, respected and celebrated.

The Agency currently has four employee networks:

  • Employee Disability Network
  • First Nations Employee Network
  • LGBTIQA+ Staff and Allies Network
  • Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) Staff Network
