Neil Twist Director Strategic Planning

I am proud to be an out gay executive at the Department of Justice and Regulation.

Fairness is at the heart of what we do and the LBGTI community has a right to expect that our department value and celebrate the right to equality, fairness and decency for LGBTI people.

The department treats our LGBTI employees with respect and understanding. We LGBTI leaders in the department are role models for young LGBTI staff in the organisation and we ensure that the department’s commitment to the LGBTI community is reflected in action, not just words.
