ABS Employee Networks
One of the key goals for the future state of our people is to have a more diverse workforce that reflects the Australian community. We are strongly committed to increasing our diversity and we particularly welcome applications from Aboriginal and/ or Torres Strait Islander graduates and graduates with disability, two of the most under-represented groups in the ABS.
The ABS Workplace Diversity Action Plan 2013-17 reaffirms the importance the ABS places on providing a workplace that is inclusive, supportive and safe for all its employees and respectful of differences in race, disability, age, sexuality and gender.
We are a proud member of the Australian Network on Disability and have senior executive staff as champions for Reconciliation, Disability, our LGBTI community and Gender Diversity.
Our commitment to diversity however, goes beyond our formal diversity plans. The ABS has formed support networks for employees with disability and carers of people with disability, an Information and Communication Technology (ICT) gender diversity group, an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employee network and employee networks for people with Aspergers and Autism, as well as a network for our LGBTI employees.
