Comcare diversity programme

Comcare values the experiences and contributions made by all of our employees. Recognising their diverse abilities and backgrounds seeks to create an inclusive and productive workplace.  We also believe that embracing diversity enables us to provide a better service to all of our stakeholders.

By incorporating access and equal opportunity into our workforce and business planning processes, we support the Australian Government's commitment to establishing an Australian Public Service that is truly representative of the Australian community.

Our commitment is not limited by these plans as we acknowledge that diversity goes beyond culture, race, religion, disability or sexual orientation. Diversity includes other differences between individuals, such as work/life experience, educational background, personality, socio-economic background, geographic location and marital status.

Our diversity programme is being implemented through the following plans and groups:

Diversity and Inclusion Strategy (2017-2020)

Comcare’s Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2017-2020 (the Strategy) identifies key priorities and specific actions Comcare will undertake to improve diversity outcomes. The Strategy demonstrates our commitment to a diverse workforce and encourages embracing diversity to provide better products and services to all our stakeholders.

Diversity Working Group

Comcare's Diversity Working Group is a team of employee volunteers who support our diversity plans and lead diversity initiatives, including events on our annual Diversity calendar.

Diversity Champion

Comcare has an appointed Diversity Champion who supports the development of diversity strategies and promotes an inclusive work culture across Comcare. The Diversity Champion sponsors Diversity Working Group initiatives.

Accessibility Action Plan 2015–17

Our Accessibility Action Plan focuses on improving workplace participation and the employment experience for people with a disability, or those affected by illness or injury and better connecting to our community with accessible services and products.

Reconciliation Action Plan 2018–2020

Our vision for reconciliation is a culture that embraces unity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians. We will work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to positively influence the journey towards reconciliation in our community and promote a diverse and inclusive workplace at Comcare.
