Energy Queensland is one of the best organisations for diversity. As a female, I can honestly say the culture is one of equality and respect, where women around me are promoted, given credibility and supported. I know if anything were to happen, I would be listened to and taken seriously and would know the avenues to take. Maternity leave options are one of the best that I have come across and the culture as a whole is so family-friendly, and welcoming and accepting of all individuals, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc.

Energy Queensland actively encourages and supports diversity. They often hold discussions around diversity and inclusion, and offer multiple HR options/cultural initiatives to action these words. As a female in a male dominated industry, and having a physical disability, I can honestly say that I feel respected, included and appreciated within the organisation.

Great recognition of women and good access to maternity leave etc, as well as some options of part time I believe. Still vastly male-dominated company overall, but diverse recruitment slowly changing that. Mixed ethnic backgrounds and supportive environment generally.

There's certain committees set up to address these issues and initiatives to drive change. However, with such a large company it is like changing the direction of a moving train. The approach has definitely changed but it is still changing.

What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
Advertise at career fairs and provide sponsorship for students coming from less privileged backgrounds. One example is the support of the career trackers internship for indigenous students.

The job advertisements always encourage all people to apply and express that they are a diverse company. I don't believe that anyone in Energy Queensland is hired on a privileged scale, if someone is good at the job they are applying for or are the best candidate, then no matter their background, they are the right candidate for the position.

My company does not discriminate againts people who come from less privileged backgrounds. Coming from an immigrant family, I felt that my chances at opportunities were equal
