5 1. Introduction 1 Introduction 1.1 Overview What is Workplace Diversity and Why Do We Need a Program? The diversity of our staff is one of our greatest assets. Recognising the value of a diverse workforce is the basis of workplace diversity. It involves valuing the differences in every employee in the workplace and developing a culture where the diverse backgrounds, skills, talents and views of all staff and those seeking employment with CASA are recognised, valued and encouraged. The characteristics of a diverse workforce include, but are not limited to, gender, age, ethnicity, disability, language, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, educational and cultural background and an individual s perspectives on work and personal lifestyle issues. Workplace diversity also embraces employment equity where persons seeking employment with CASA receive fair and equitable treatment, where employment decisions are based on merit and where all staff can work in an environment that is free from discrimination, harassment and bullying. Equal Employment Opportunity principles remain a legislative requirement ensuring the elimination of discrimination on the basis of race or ethnicity, against women, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and people with disabilities. While retaining the essential principles of EEO, the concept of workplace diversity takes on a broader focus where the differences inherent in every employee are valued What Is the Aim of Our Program and How Will We Achieve It? The aim of CASA s Workplace Diversity Program is to create an environment where fairness and equity is encouraged and supported and where all forms of discrimination, harassment and bullying is eliminated. CASA will work to achieve this objective by implementing strategies and by measuring our successes. See the tables in Section 2 to find out what actions and measure we are taking What is CASA s Role? CASA will: Comply with anti-discrimination legislation to help prevent and eliminate any employment related disadvantage attributable to race, colour, gender, sexual preference, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, political opinion, national extraction, or social origin Promote workplace diversity and remain proactive in eliminating all forms of harassment and bullying in the workplace Consult with staff in developing and maintaining workplace practices that provide flexibility for staff to balance their work and personal life-style commitments Ensure selection committees: Are aware of and consider the benefits of moving towards a more diverse workforce Version 1.0: November of 12

6 1. Introduction Consider the interests of applicants who may possibly be subject to employmentrelated disadvantage because of Aboriginality, ethnicity, race, gender or disability Focus on any special facilities that an applicant may require to participate in a selection process (eg, wheel chair access, provision of interpreters) Are aware of the concept of reasonable adjustment which provides for physical and organisational changes to workplace design to enable a person with a disability to perform to their full potential Base their employment decisions on merit How Can I Contribute to the Success of the Program? As an individual All staff in CASA have a responsibility for fostering a culture in the workplace where diversity is valued and supported. We must: Treat each other with courtesy, respect and without harassment and foster good working relationships Maintain appropriate standards of ethical behaviour, conduct and performance in accordance with the Code of Conduct Draw on our diverse backgrounds, skills and talents and focus on areas where these attributes may be enhanced and of value to the working environment Listen to the views of others without prejudice Commit to eliminating all forms of discrimination, harassment and bullying in the workplace. As a Manager As a Manager, you will support CASA s role by: Displaying a positive commitment to workplace diversity Openly discuss and raise awareness of equity and diversity to staff Encouraging and supporting staff in managing their work and personal life-style commitments Dealing with inappropriate behaviour in the workplace Seeking a diverse range of views and encouraging staff to contribute Ensuring that staff selection processes adhere to the merit principle and that issues of diversity are considered How Will We Check on Our Progress? CASA will maintain appropriate systems and procedures to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness and achievements of the Workplace Diversity Program. Performance indicators will be used to measure program outcomes. 2 of 12 Version 1.0: November 2007

Workplace Diversity Program 2 Workplace Diversity Program The Workplace Diversity Program demonstrates that CASA aims to create an inclusive workplace environment that uses the values, talents, abilities and contributions of all its people.
