At Aussie Broadband we see difference as our point of difference. We celebrate it, we support it, and thrive on it – because it means our staff can bring their whole selves to work, and that we can better represent our customers and community.
Our inclusion and diversity initiatives are staff-led and strongly supported an executive level, under our values of “be good to people” and “no bullsh*t”. We are always looking for ways to improve our approach and constantly expanding what we mean by inclusion. Look below to learn more about what we do.
We have an extremely active and rapidly expanding Aussie Pride group that promotes LGBTIQ inclusion across Aussie Broadband. We attend events like Midsumma and the Gippsland Pride Gala, we support staff through gender affirmation, we’re members of Pride in Diversity, we participate in the Australian Workplace Equality Index, we provide ally training to interested staff and we proudly fly the rainbow flag outside our head office in Morwell, Gippsland.
We love the fact that this big broad land is one of the most multicultural in the world. To us, being Aussie is an attitude, not a country of origin. We provide multicultural awareness training to our staff, and we take a strong stand against racism in all forms – particularly abuse of our staff who happen to have accents.
We see disability as a social construct – not denying that disability has a real impact on people, but also accepting the challenge to accommodate impairment as an expected part of human diversity. We have a Disability Action Plan, we participate in activities like Gippsland Shadow Day, we caption our videos; we do our best to accommodate any staff member’s disability needs. Plus, we’re big fans of Stella Young’s “inspiration porn” TED talk.
There have been feet treading this country for many thousands of years before ours. We acknowledge country wherever we work, we fly both the Aboriginal andTorres Strait Island flags, our Small Change Big Change program supports the indigenous health promotion charity Red Dust, we provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island inclusion and cultural safety training, and we’re just starting the journey of a Reconciliation Action Plan.
