Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

Recruiting, developing and maintaining a diverse workforce is critical to everything we do at ESV. We want all of our people to be – and feel – respected for who they are. Diversity should never be a barrier to success.

That’s why we developed our diversity and inclusion strategy, underpinned by a diversity and inclusion action plan, with clear and measurable objectives. We believe this will further enhance ESV’s positive culture of diversity and inclusion, and encourage even more of our staff to respect and celebrate the diversity of our people.

Gender Equality Action Plan

As a defined entity under the Gender Equality Act, we are required to develop and implement a Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP) every 4 years. The plan must include the results of a workplace gender audit and the associated strategies and measures for achieving workplace gender equality in the workplace, based on the workplace gender equality audit results. Our workplace gender audit was submitted to the Gender Equality Commission in December 2021.

Gender equality is about creating a workplace that addresses disadvantage, stigma, stereotyping, prejudice and violence, and accommodates equal access of opportunity and resources to all our people regardless of their gender.

Our goal is to create a culture that is respectful, safe and inclusive and our people reflect the diversity of the Victorian community we serve. To achieve this; we will build on our inclusive environment, where everyone feels safe to bring their whole self to work, where people feel included and where we can all thrive.

Our Gender Equality Action Plan outlines the findings of our gender equality audit and the action we are taking to address barriers for employees. The plan creates a significant opportunity to role model gender equality to the public we serve.
