Treasury�s Progressing Women Initiative has become a core part of the organisation. It aims to address the lack of women in senior positions, for example, by overcoming unconscious biases and updating the performance management framework.
There�s a very strong program in place to address diversity issues, particularly women.
Treasury is committed to diversity and recognises everyone has something different to contribute. There are many programmes and initiatives dedicated to ensure this continues.
Flexible work is available. The Department runs an inclusivity program designed to make the department more inclusive than it has been in the past.
There is a Progressing Women Initiative which aims to get women into the Senior Executive Service (higher levels in the Department).
The progressing women initiative remains strong and flexible work practices are encouraged. Improvements can be made in ensuring new recruits (such as the graduate intake) represent more diversity.
What does your company do to attract applicants from less privileged backgrounds?
The Australian Public Service (APS) has various programmes to ensure people from less privileged backgrounds are given opportunities in the APS.
