Diversity at TasNetworks

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.

The company is very supportive of diversity, the only thing that prevents more diversity in the workplace is the want for employees which want to stay in the Tasmanian business and not move on after they have done their graduate years. Investing in a person’s career, obviously ideally the company wants return on that investment. Targeting people who wish to stay in this business long term would be the goal. Other than this, diversity is encouraged. There are currently talks around the company promoting STEM in schools for young females to introduce them to engineering, there are multiple examples of the company supporting maternity leave and part time work, the company hires many people with different ethnicity and the company is supporting my decision to return to study part time by allowing me some "study leave" days for professional development.

There is all those things mentioned. Recruitment I believe is fair and consistent.

I believe that my company does everything that it can to encourage and introduce diversity into a traditionally non-diverse industry.

Pretty diverse workforce. I believe the company places a huge priority on it though.
