Diversity and inclusion

Our goal in the NSW public sector is to attract and retain the right people for the right jobs, no matter what their gender, race, age, religious beliefs, or personal commitments.
This means that we are embedding diversity and inclusion in everything we do on a daily basis, whether it be our recruitment processes, workplace culture, career development programs, customer service or policies and procedures.

By embracing people from all walks of life within our community, we’re building a strong, motivated and dynamic workforce that’s reflective of the diversity of our State. This gives us a deeper understanding of the communities we serve and allows us to deliver better outcomes for the people of NSW through our wide range of expertise, perspectives and innovative ideas.
