Relationships Australia NSW Inclusion Statement
Diversity. Culture. Inclusion. We strive to build an organisation where commitment to these values is meaningful and tangible. We encourage understanding, appreciation and acceptance of all people in their efforts to create loving, caring, healthy and safe relationships. Our services and programs are for everyone, and reach many diverse communities. Guided by our Reconciliation Action Plan we encourage an inclusive workplace, sharing of ‘lived’ experience, and incubation of ideas through social justice staff networks supporting cultural and linguistic diversity, the LGBTIQ+ community and people living with disability and chronic health conditions. That said, we acknowledge the diversity within diversity, and the multiple layers which make up each person’s unique identity. We value consultation and diverse voices which inform, influence and enhance our decision making and improve what we offer. We value our skilled and increasingly diverse workforce who understand unique needs. We have a shared commitment to social responsibility. Our aim is that our partners too, reflect these core values.
Part of our commitment to inclusion is membership of programs and peak bodies that assist us to walk our inclusion and belonging journey. Pride in Health + Wellbeing is one such program; a national membership program that provides year-round support in the provision of LGBT inclusive services for those working within the health and wellbeing sector.
