Paula Russell-Gilford, Senior Manager, Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), Markets Enforcement

I have been out since joining ASIC and have felt comfortable since day one. ASIC supports a diverse and inclusive workplace and provides an environment where I feel confident to be the real me and bring my whole self to work every day. In so doing, ASIC gets the best of me at work and allows me to focus on the job at hand rather than worrying about ‘will I be accepted for who I am’?

Diversity is essential in an investigations team, where looking at things differently can often lead to the breakthrough we need.  My role as Senior Manager enables to me to be a gay role model for younger staff and shows them that it’s okay to be openly gay and succeed at work.
