Many people from all different backgrounds in the workplace. Very good split of men and women in the office, however men seem to have the more senior positions.

There are regular events led by the diversity and inclusion team, however the biggest influence was how prominent the diversity and inclusion induction sessions were. The values of the organisation were clear from the start.

Cannot be prouder to work at a company that continues to evolve when it comes to diversity.

I think there is a lot of work being done in this area and I am hopeful that it will help with recruitment, retention and promotion. There are targets in place that the organisation is working towards, however, hopefully overall change regarding diversity can also be achieved.

The company is very committed to diversity with many groups to try to encourage it. For example, we have women in transport, LGBT and allied community as well as an indigenous group.

The government highly values the diversity and inclusivity, and the training sessions about this are provided for new employees.

Recruitment is very diverse and there is reasonable retention and promotion of culturally diverse people. Gender diversity is lagging in the technical areas but the support available is excellent.

I'm not sure that I'm in any group directly affected by my company's commitment to diversity, so I'm not sure I can speak to this question in a meaningful way. However, from an outsider's perspective, they do appear to make an effort. They have several diversity working groups, each sponsored by a Deputy Secretary.

In some areas like women, ethnic minorities diversity is seen and the fact that some people are openly LGBT is a good sign. I still think there's a huge gap in socio-economic status as all the people I have met from these diverse groups have still had a wealthy upbringing and it shows across the portfolio.

Many different diversity groups to represent all, with clear plans to assist in moving towards equality.

What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
I believe support and allowances are provided to support such applicants.

They have targets and run programs to attract young indigenous people after school.

I believe the company is working above and beyond when it comes to providing equal opportunity in this space.

We have cadetships and an aboriginal employment program.

I believe there are programs run to encourage student development and provide entry level roles. Often contracts also have social procurement clauses.
