This is for those interested in encouraging diversity at work and in the community to ensure equity and harmony in the workplace through understanding and respecting different cultures, people’s choices, special needs, personal situations, and language capabilities. Organisations and individuals can achieve this by:
Identifying unconscious bias in recruitment, career management, promotion and retention.
Having transparent discussions that hightlight the benefit of a diverse and inclusive workplace.
Valuing individual skills that employees bring to the workplace including language, culture and international experiences.
Ensuring flexible work options are available.
Making arrangements for employees with special needs.
Taking steps to prevent discrimination and harassment and bullying in the workplace.
