ONI's Diversity Commitment

ONI has a healthy and positive culture that we are rightly proud of. We are committed to flexible work arrangements and to championing diversity. The goal of ONI’s Diversity Action Plan is to achieve a stronger, healthier and more effective organisation by improving our workplace practices and building a workforce that better reflects the diversity of our society.

Diversity is an asset. We will build ONI into an organisation that employs more women, and includes more women in our most senior ranks. We want to remove barriers to the employment of people with disabilities, indigenous Australians, and those from culturally diverse non-English-speaking backgrounds.

Through consultation and transparency, ONI embraces diversity at all stages of the employment cycle.

Our action plan promotes best-practice policies that support diversity in recruitment and promotion, training and career development, performance management and access to part-time or flexible work arrangements for all staff. All ONI senior managers are diversity champions.

We support equality of opportunity for professional growth and advancement. ONI fosters an accessible and inclusive workplace culture that supports collaboration among all facets of our organisation. We believe that diversity strengthens all aspects of our organisation: from our crucial enterprise management, research and coordination roles, to the analytical rigour on which our judgments are based.
