A note from the Chief Executive
Everyone should feel welcome at Roads and Maritime Services. More than that, I want anyone who walks through our doors to feel they are heard and valued as part of a diverse and inclusive workplace.
We employ over 6,000 people at Roads and Maritime. The work we carry out is critical to the lives of millions of road and waterway users across New South Wales. Local communities rely on us to deliver safe and efficient services which enable them to thrive.
We believe the only way to deliver high quality services to our customers, is to have a workforce that reflects the communities it serves. A workforce that understands local issues and can look ahead to our needs of the future.
Having a diverse workforce increases our ability to innovate, to be more productive and to deliver the best outcomes for our customers.
Across the Transport Cluster, our goal is to make diversity a strength of our organisation; driven by inclusive leadership and a workplace culture that embraces our differences.
We have just embarked on this journey and have already made some real progress. However, there is still more to do. Diversity and inclusiveness is something we are all responsible for collectively.
In this plan, we have outlined our 2020 commitments to driving workforce diversity and highlight the areas of greatest need at this point in time. The delivery of this plan, ongoing sponsorship from across our leadership and commitment from all our employees, will pave the way towards positive and lasting change.
