The ACT Public Service (ACTPS) is a progressive, diverse and inclusive organisation that believes in a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer (LGBTIQ) inclusive workplace. The ACTPS is committed to supporting LGBTIQ staff through the Respect, Equity and Diversity (RED) Framework and education campaigns for the broader staff population.
The ACTPS was one of the first jurisdictions to join Pride in Diversity, a not for profit organisation that assists employer's to develop LGBTIQ inclusive cultures through raising awareness, educating staff and developing inclusive policies/procedures.
The ACTPS has joined Pride in Diversity, Australia’s leading employer support program in workplace diversity, and have delivered a range of awareness training across the service. This training is supported by a range of resources to educate and raise awareness, aiming to develop work practices and cultures that are inclusive of LGBTIQ employees and LGBTIQ members of the wider ACT community.
