Our Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We celebrate diversity and inclusion, and strive to provide services where there is opportunity for everyone.

We embrace creating a connected organisation which enables all of the people that we support, our staff, students, contractors, and volunteers to feel safe from discrimination.

We support an inclusive environment where people of all genders and ages, people living with a disability, First Nations people and people from LGBTI and CALD communities feel empowered to contribute their experiences and ideas, knowing that these will be valued.

We aim to make every member of our community feels comfortable when interacting with our organisation.  Our pathway towards fostering an inclusive and diverse culture is ongoing and reflected through our actions.

As part of our ongoing inclusion and diversity work, we work to maintain our Rainbow Tick accreditation and Reconciliation Action Plan.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Our Reconciliation Action Plan guides and informs Bethany Group to work towards reconciliation and promote cultural inclusivity.  Currently we are working on our Innovate Plan, which we hope to launch in 2023.
