We have an engaged, proactive and supportive group of culture and diversity networks. All staff are encouraged to join and participate in these networks, enhancing the support, guidance and camaraderie between staff.
The Ability Network is committed to supporting, improving opportunities, identifying and removing barriers for people with a disability, carers and those with mental health conditions.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Network
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Staff Network (ATSISN) supports new and existing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and is an informal resource for staff to seek information on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues.
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Network
The CALD Network recognises all people from different backgrounds, and the different perspectives and experiences they bring. The Network contributes to enabling a culture which encourages a diversity of positive contribution to Finance and facilitates a supportive, inclusive, empowered and respectful work environment.
Emerging Leaders Network
Leadership is a critical element in any organisation and the Emerging Leaders Network (ELN) aims to unlock the potential of our emerging leaders. The ELN is open to all staff regardless of age.
Gender Equity Network
The Gender Equity Network (GEN) aims to achieve gender equality through education within the Department recognising gender inequality does not just affect women and we must work together to achieve equal opportunities and positive outcomes for all genders.
The purpose of the LGBTI+ Network (the Network) is to provide a safe and supportive environment for all staff, regardless of sexuality or gender identity. The Network raises awareness to improve the understanding of LGBTI+ issues through events and activities as well as contribute to policies, guides and procedures for an inclusive workplace.
Social interaction, making connections and building relationships with our colleagues is a central part of building a positive culture here at Finance, and Finance’s Social Club plays a key role in making this happen.
