Diversity and Inclusion

At Ausgrid, we respect people as individuals and value their differences. We are committed to creating a working environment that is fair and inclusive, promotes personal and professional growth and benefits from the capabilities of its diverse workforce.

We recognise that harnessing diversity of thought and having an inclusive culture will help us to become more innovative, and better understand and reflect our customer needs.

As an equal opportunity employer, our people are made up of a diverse mix of ages, backgrounds, skills and professions. This diverse mix of talent and perspectives is recognised, valued and encouraged through various programs and initiatives.

One such program is our Reconciliation Action Plan. This outlines our commitment to advancing reconciliation and improving opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the areas of relationships, cultural understanding and respect, and employment and training. We are currently in the process of refreshing our Reconciliation Action Plan and look forward to launching this in 2017.
