The NSW public sector is working to reflect the full diversity of the community in its workforce. The sector needs to include and support individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and queer/questioning (LGBTIQ+). 

An LGBTIQ+ inclusive workplace allows employees to feel valued, safe, and respected.  It provides them with access to the same freedoms and opportunities as everyone else, without exception. Creating a workplace where employees bring their whole and true selves to work leads to increased job satisfaction and productivity.

The Public Service Commission is a proud member of Pride in Diversity, a not-for-profit employer support program for LGBTIQ+ inclusion. 

Pride in NSW

Our whole of sector Pride in NSW network provides an inclusive place for LGBTIQ+ staff to work and thrive. You can join the network by completing this membership form
