I am pleased to present the refreshed 2022-26 ABS Inclusion and Diversity Strategy (the Strategy) which reaffirms our commitment to an inclusive culture and workplace that values and celebrates diversity.

This Strategy is a key element of our ABS 2021-25 Workforce Strategy that supports the ABS’ purpose to inform Australia’s important decisions by delivering relevant, trusted and objective data, statistics and insights. It also aligns with and supports the objectives of the APS Workforce and Employment Strategies on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, People with Disability and Gender Equality.

An updated set of strategic priorities has been developed to meet the shifting expectations of our staff, government and our clients. These strategic priorities confirm the ABS’ intention to embed inclusion and diversity through our actions when engaging, supporting, participating, and developing our staff and products, as well as ensuring staff wellbeing and representation in leadership. This enables the ABS to make the best use of the expertise, skills and experiences of our staff and supports them to perform at their best.

We all have a role to play in being inclusive and I encourage you to familiarise yourself with the ABS Inclusion and Diversity Strategy and commit to take action to ensure its success.
