ACNC’s approach to diversity and inclusion

The ACNC’s workforce is diverse, inclusive, and representative of the sector we regulate.

The ACNC promotes an environment where the cultures, backgrounds, and experiences of our employees are recognised and valued.

We champion the removal of barriers to ensure all employees are able to reach their full potential in the workplace. We provide a supportive and adaptable work environment to ensure all our employees are able to balance work, family and caring responsibilities.

The ACNC strives to be an Australian Public Service diversity and inclusion leader. This commitment is represented by all ACNC employees, and collectively we are ethical, respectful and supportive.

The ACNC implements programs to support an inclusive work environment, which includes a focus on:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • people living with disability
  • women
  • people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds
  • lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans/transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people, and
  • mature-aged people.

Additionally, our managers and employees are encouraged to report bullying, harassment or discrimination and are confident in their ability to identify and report inappropriate behaviour when they witness it.

The ACNC has an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities Engagement Strategy that sets out our commitment to working well with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and guides related activities.

The ACNC also utilises and supports the ATO’s Diversity and Inclusion Plan 2015–2017, which sets out the ATO’s formal commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
