We aim to create a workplace which provides equal opportunity and advancement in employment regardless of gender, where workplace flexibility arrangements support both women and men to balance family and caring responsibilities and work participation, and gender balance supports improved business decision-making, merit and performance.
Our plan is supported by the department’s Family and Domestic Violence Strategy 2016–19 which outlines the department’s commitment to helping staff and customers experiencing family and domestic violence issues by providing information, referrals and support.
Our plan supports the Balancing the Future: The Australian Public Service Gender Equality Strategy 2016–19 which seeks to address gender imbalance across the APS and sets out actions for driving high performance and boosting productivity.
