Belonging, inclusion and diversity are core foundations that underpin a world class public service. When we foster a culture of belonging and inclusion, we see improvements in our workplace culture, productivity, and customer satisfaction.

The NSW Government has made creating a 'world class public service' one of the Premier’s Priorities. This includes driving public sector diversity by 2025 through:

  • having 50% of senior leadership roles held by women 
  • increasing the number of Aboriginal people in senior leadership roles 
  • ensuring 5.6% of government sector roles are held by people with a disability. 

As a senior executive you have a key role to play in meeting the Premier’s Priority targets by creating workplace environments that are inclusive for all employees.

There are many resources available to help you be an inclusive leader. You can also reach out to your internal HR or diversity and inclusion team for more resources available in your agency.
