Diversity and Inclusion

WDEA Works believes that everyone is unique and deserves equality. We value diversity and inclusion for all of our employees, employers, clients and community partners.  We are wholly committed to the Equal Employment Opportunity principles.

WDEA Works is proud to take the first steps in its journey towards Reconciliation. Working with Reconciliation Australia, WDEA Works is creating a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This exploration and reflection will provide our organisation with opportunity to improve our corporate culture, client relations, recruitment processes and stakeholder engagement. As a diverse organisation we’ll be better able to build skills, perspective and experience, leading to more innovative ways to engage with all our stakeholders.

What diversity and inclusion means to WDEA Works?

WDEA Works believes everyone should be represented. Diversity is made up of people with different backgrounds, personalities experiences and beliefs. It also includes a vast range of characteristics and experiences unique to the individual, such as ethnicity, gender, age, race, religion, disability, sexuality, education, location, language, career path, life experience, income, marital status, parental status and many other elements. Our differences shape the way we view the world and impact our perspective and approach. At WDEA Works, diversity is about recognising and valuing people based on our differences.

Our commitment to Inclusion ensures that every person who works with us has a voice, and enjoys equal opportunity without barriers.

WDEA Works reduces barriers for people living with disability

WDEA Works has a person-centred approach that means all people are treated with dignity and respect.  At every stage, we consider the individual needs and accessibility requirements of our clients, employees and community partners.
