Exceptional! Bankwest provides tons of information on the diversity programs on day one, and there's a strong emphasis on how important it is to the company. I have already come across 9 colleagues who have taken advantage of maternity (and paternity) leave, and the office is child friendly

Bankwest was one of the first companies to offer a set of internships specifically targeted at students on the Autism Spectrum

They have recently started to hire through Autism West into various Software Testing and Delivery roles and are creating a safe space for these colleagues. They are also providing training for other staff on working with colleagues on the autism spectrum
