DPC has developed a number of individual action plans that sit under our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2019–2021, which has five priority areas:

The following diagram shows where the plan fits into the internal diversity and inclusion framework and how our focus on gender equality complements existing organisational strategies. The diagram also identifies the relevant legislation standards and guidelines considered in developing this plan.

A number of strategies contained in the plan align with the measures outlined in the individual action plans relating to People with Disability and DPC’s Aboriginal, LGBTIQ+, and CALD workforce. The individual plans however contain more focussed strategies to address gender inequality specific to the experiences of each group.
