Diversity and inclusion

Diversity and inclusion

Treasury is committed to building a demographically diverse workforce reflective of Queensland’s communities, while providing an inclusive, safe and respectful workplace for all employees.

Our Inclusion Matters statement, signed by our Under Treasurer and other senior leaders, is our department’s commitment to building an inclusive culture in which our diversity is valued, respected and celebrated.  We actively support inclusion and equity in our day-to-day decision making and practices. Our diversity and inclusion program supports the Queensland Public Sector’s Inclusion and Diversity Strategy 2021-2025.

Diversity is a strength

Our workforce diversity is a strength – it gives us a collective capability that represents the Queensland community and the different perspectives and experiences that enable us to make better decisions and recommendations as a central agency.

Treasury has six diversity and inclusion focus areas:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • Disability
  • Gender equity
  • Cultural diversity
  • LGBTIQ+
  • Generational diversity.

Our diversity and inclusion program includes initiatives that assist us to deliver on our commitments in Treasury’s Cultural Capability Action Plan and Disability Service Plan, as well as the Queensland Government’s Multicultural Action Plan.

Leading our inclusive workplace

Treasury’s Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee

Treasury’s Diversity and Inclusion Steering Committee provides guidance and direction to diversity and inclusion strategy and policy across our department. It includes senior leadership from across Treasury, representatives from Treasury’s Diversity and Inclusion Employee Network, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees and representatives from diverse groups.

Treasury’s Diversity and Inclusion Employee Network

Treasury’s Diversity and Inclusion Employee Network provides employees with an opportunity to be actively involved in the direction of key workplace diversity and inclusion initiatives. Membership of the network is open to all employees.

Supporting careers in government

Treasury’s commitment to building a diverse workforce starts with inclusive recruitment – treating all applicants equitably and making reasonable adjustments to support applicants at all stages of the process.

Treasury’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cadetship Program focuses on increasing the department’s cultural diversity, specifically representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, in recognition of the vital contributions First Nations people can make across economic, cultural and organisational domains.
