Inclusion and Diversity Strategy

We are focused on maintaining and further building the diversity of our workforce through a range of inclusion and diversity initiatives.

Diversity is important because a diverse and inclusive workforce capitalises on the skills and talents of all members of the community. It harnesses and values people for their diverse range of skills and capabilities, leading to a more engaged, motivated and productive workforce.

Treasury’s Inclusion and Diversity Strategy 2023-2028 clearly articulates our vision, priorities and plan.

There are a number of employee networks and diversity committees within Treasury that drive inclusion and diversity.

Networks provide direct support to employees through their events and advice. They also act as a key consultation point and contribute to work that increases diversity awareness and capability.
