Roads and Maritime's Diversity and Inclusion Committee
Driving diversity and inclusion across the state
Driving change across the state – Roads and Maritime Diversity and Inclusion Forum Committees
Roads and Maritime has established Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Forum Committees to support local initiatives to enable a diverse and inclusive culture.
In June 2016 the Roads and Maritime executive allocated $80,000 towards establishing these committees with each responsible for identifying initiatives that would help deliver a more diverse, flexible and inclusive workplace.
Setting up our regionally based Diversity and Inclusion Forum committees harness the historical regional presence that makes Roads and Maritime who we are today. The rich history of our organisation is deeply rooted in parts of our state few of us actually ever get to see and visit – this is the heart and soul of our organisation. Taking a regionally based approach empowers our people to make change and gives them the resources to own it at a local level.
