Please provide further information on diversity with respect to women, ethnic minorities and LGBT. Please comment on issues such as recruitment, retention, promotion, child care, maternity leave, etc.

Childcare center on site and paid maternity leave. the company is working towards a SAGE Accreditation. As a woman I think the company has the right approach, I've never been told "you only got this job because you are a girl" like I was in a previous company.

What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?

I am not aware. However, there is a strong focus on meritocracy to ensure no disadvantage in hiring. I am from a poor background but that never entered into the question of my suitability for the role

Nothing that I am specifically aware of, but my workplace employs many people from less privileged backgrounds compared to other places I have worked.

We provide pathways from low entry requirement positions which can lead all the way to senior management

ANSTO has a broad range of jobs available within the company. In terms of attracting applicants from less privileged backgrounds, I'm uncertain what exactly they do. Though I understand they advertise all their jobs locally and go to as many various universities as possible.
