We believe that your experience of work and sense of belonging to the workplace are perhaps the most important drivers of your engagement and performance.

We also understand that having a workplace culture that values diversity and inclusion supports everyone—people with different viewpoints, cultures, genders and preferences, to participate in the workplace in ways that are satisfying and rewarding.

At AFSA, our approach is to provide contemporary workforce solutions that address and remove barriers to employment. We recognise, celebrate and promote various initiatives to support our workforce to truly belong.

A critical key to fully honouring our employees who identify as LGBTIQ is to promote and support employee-led and management driven responses to PRIDE. We have an active employee-driven LGBTIQ Network (Pride@AFSA) for employees who identify as LGBTIQ and their alllies. Pride@AFSA is strongly supported by the Corporate Division, executive leaders and the broad staff base. We’re a proud member of Pride in Diversity and work to support the visibility, inclusivity and representation of LGBTIQ people within our agency and the broader community.
