Diversity and inclusion

A high quality workforce is central to public authorities being able to effectively and efficiently deliver services to the Western Australian community. 

To be a truly citizen-centric public sector, a workforce that is also representative of the community we all serve is important. This can be achieved by strategically aligning corporate planning and workforce planning processes, and formally integrating diversity and inclusion values into the way we run our organisations.
 
Evidence suggests that the ‘diversity dividend’ is real. Workplaces that are fair and transparent, and where diverse gender, racial and cultural perspectives are valued, have been shown to produce better organisational performance, productivity and employee engagement.
