The PSC, in collaboration with sector employees and experts, has developed two e-learning modules to improve disability awareness among NSW public sector employees. We know from our annual employee survey results that people with disability in our sector report much higher rates of bullying and less engagement with their organisation than the broader workforce. These modules contain the foundational information we all need to confidently and effectively work with colleagues who may have a disability, and make our sector a more inclusive and accessible place to work for all.
The modules’ show what to KNOW, SAY and DO to contribute effectively to an inclusive workplace. The first module is for all employees and the second module for managers, with the aim to de-mystify what inclusive practices look and sound like.
The PSC has also generated, in consultation with Learning and Development representatives from the sector, an Implementation Guide for agencies to get the most from this training package, and build on it as we work towards achieving our sector-wide representation target for people with a disability of 5.6% by 2027.
This module will explain how you can become more inclusive in the workplace by understanding disability and by contributing to more inclusive environments.
