    Diversity & Inclusion

Everyone is welcome here.

We are a behaviours over beliefs organisation.

We believe everyone has a right to their own personal views and we don't try to change that. However, we do hold people accountable for their actions and behaviours towards others at work. And we're committed to making our workplace a safe and inclusive place for everyone. 

We treat everyone equally, choosing language - verbal, non-verbal and in our written literature - which is inclusive and respectful of all genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, races, religions and abilities. Our diversity program operates under the fundamental principle that a person’s background, beliefs and practices are not a barrier to participation in our workforce.
