WA Health Equal Opportunity and Diversity Policy
WA Health is committed to equal opportunity and diversity and promotes a work environment that is free from discrimination and harassment, and where individuals are treated with fairness, respect, equality and dignity.
WA Health recognises the need for an open and inclusive workplace culture where diversity is valued and the social and cultural backgrounds of all employees are respected. Diversity can contribute to the creation of a productive environment in which the talents of staff are utilised and organisational goals are met. A diverse workforce can broaden workplace knowledge and experience, enhance service delivery and generate new ideas and insights.
The revised WA Health Equal Opportunity and Diversity Policy has been amended to:
align with the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (WA)
make provision for the resolution of harassment and discrimination grievances.
clarify responsibilities for employees, managers and Chief Executives.
