Equal Employment Opportunities
WSLHD is committed to creating a workplace that reflects the diversity of our community. This will help ensure our employees, our patients and their carers, feel supported no matter what their gender, race, age, religious beliefs, physical ability, sexual orientation or background.
Equity is the foundation of our approach to employment. We are part of of one of the most culturally, linguistically and socially diverse areas in Australia: 35% of Western Sydney residents were born overseas, 48% of people speak a language other than English at home and we are home to the largest urban Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population (11,500 or 1.4%) in the nation. Our aim is to achieve workforce parity with this vibrant profile.
At WSLHD, we strive for equal outcomes in the workforce by increasing ability and capacity among individuals, families, the community and the organisation.
