Diversity and inclusion
WCS embraces, supports and strengthens diversity within our community, our services and our organisation. We create a culture of respect and inclusivity within our organisation where everyone feels valued and can contribute.
The WCS commitment to diversity and inclusion is set out in the WCS Diversity Statement. We are development and implementing a work plan to ensure we fulfil this commitment.
WCS recognises the resilience, strength and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their endurance and successes. We acknowledge the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language groups, with the broad range of cultural knowledge they bring to family, community and country. We all gain from the sharing of their culture and wisdom, to live and work upon these ancestral lands and waterways with respect.
Our vision for reconciliation is to:
- acknowledge the impact, historical and continuous, that colonisation has had upon Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
- strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and those who have come to live on this land
- work towards social and economic equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
