Equity and diversity plan 2023-2024

The Department of Transport and Main Roads' (TMR) Equity and Diversity Plan (the Plan) identifies actions for improving equity and diversity to employment matters for:

  • Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people
  • People with disability
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • Women in leadership
  • People who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, intersex, queer and questioning and asexual (LGBTIQA+).

We acknowledge that our employees may identify with more than one of these individual diversity groups and therefore may also face intersectional barriers to equity and inclusion.

The intent of this Plan goes further than satisfying the requirement for it to exist under section 28 of the Public Sector Act 2022. It is the next step to mature our approach to equity and diversity within the employment landscape and will contribute to:

  • a strengthened, diverse, and inclusive workplace, leadership profile and culture
  • a workplace which represents the diverse communities we serve
  • greater employee engagement and sense of belonging
  • expanded, more diverse talent pools
  • enhanced innovation and creativity of problem solving
  • improved performance and retention.

We recognise that achieving the full intent of the Public Sector Act 2022 is a long-term goal. We understand genuine progress will be in the actions and outcomes which focus on building the workplace culture to support sustainable change. Our priority is to build a collective understanding of equity, diversity, and inclusion to address the causes rather than the symptoms of inequity and exclusion.
