Diversity

AWH is committed to having a diverse workforce through equal opportunity. We celebrate the diversity of different ages, gender, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, religious belief, work experience, educational background, and consider it an incredible benefit to our organisation and community that we serve to have a culturally diverse workforce.

Disability

We are an inclusive employer welcoming people from all backgrounds, and are increasingly investing more time and efforts in creating a disability confident organisation, which ensures inclusion and enables employment for people with disability.

Aboriginal Employment Plan

As part of AWH’s commitment to workforce diversity, inclusion and service access for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities, the Aboriginal Employment Plan will assist in the employment of Aboriginal people in both clinical and non-clinical roles within the organisation. More importantly, Aboriginal people employed through the Aboriginal Employment Plan will be part of the overall AWH team and not necessarily in Identified Aboriginal positions; ensuring that Aboriginal employees are an integrated and valued AWH staff member.

Employing Aboriginal people across all departments will assist in developing a culturally responsive organisation that promotes the benefit of preventative health services and the importance of accessing health services at the earliest opportunity. Both will greatly assist in closing the unacceptable gap that currently exists between the health outcomes of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community and the wider Victoria community.
