Commitment to access and inclusion in DCJ content

Business area: Inclusion and Diversity

Directorate: People Branch

Division: Corporate Services

Project summary

As a result of the Access and Inclusion Index, we will be incorporating more explicit and visible statements around DCJ commitment to disability inclusion and employment. This will include ensuring statements are clear on the intranet and strategy materials.

Focus Area:

  • Supporting access to meaningful employment.

Project objective

Ensuring DCJ People strategies, intranet and internet content outlines our clear commitment to access and inclusion for people with disability as employees and potential employees.

The challenge

Incorporating these commitment statements in online locations and strategy documents that will have appropriate reach and impact.

Why is this important?

Visibility of our commitment is critical for attracting and retaining staff with disability. This is an area identified through the Access and Inclusion Index results for DCJ to address in meeting the criteria for 'Commitment'.

What will success look like?

Incorporating a clear commitment statement into key strategy documents, on the external DCJ careers website and internally on the Inclusion and Diversity Disability Employment intranet page. The commitment to access and inclusion can also be circulated in any key communication pieces related to disability employment, such as Workplace Adjustments or any future DIAP emails.

How will you measure success?

Success will be measured through an internal review of the key information sources (intranet, internet and strategy documents), as well as being reviewed as part of DCJ participation in the 2021 Access and Inclusion Index through the Australian Network on Disability (AND).
