Diversity and Inclusion
Our Differences are Our Strength
The diversity of our employees enables us to collaborate better, be more creative, achieve greater quality, and innovate. We value and support diversity and inclusion in our workplace and we want to continue building a culture that accepts and encourages our employees to bring all of themselves and their individual uniqueness to work. Our clients, stakeholders and communities come from all walks of life and so do we.
We have a number of initiatives to encourage greater diversity and inclusion:
At the heart of our ACOR Values are the ideals of doing the right thing for all people, the environment, and communities. These Values align with Indigenous peoples, who strive to live in Harmony with Country.
Led by our Indigenous Reconciliation Committee (IRC), ACOR is committed to strengthening our relationship with local Indigenous peoples and facilitating reconciliation within our business. We are doing this by increasing our cultural awareness and understanding of Indigenous history, truth-telling, and fostering positive relationships through our interactions in business and the wider community.
Developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in collaboration with Reconciliation Australia is an essential step towards making a positive impact, which we are currently undertaking. This is a framework of action that specifies how we will contribute to reconciliation in the communities in which we operate.
We partner with Indigenous Business through Supply Nation, and provide pathways and support systems for Indigenous adults to attend and graduate from university with high marks and industry experience through our partnership with CareerTrackers.
ACOR is proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer, which means that we will not discriminate against employees based on their race, colour, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetic information.
We continue to identify ways in which we can further the careers and opportunities for women across the business and in leadership positions to ensure representation of women at all levels.
We also contribute to the annual Workplace Gender Equality Agency report on female participation and progression in our workplace.
We believe it’s important to ensure that people with disabilities have opportunities for meaningful and rewarding employment.
We partner with a disability employment provider that offer job placement and ongoing job training and support to people with disabilities. Through this partnership we have built mutually beneficial relationships.
Veterans' Employment Support
Our business recognises the value and unique experience of our veterans and encourages employment opportunities for those who have served our country.
ACOR are proud to have signed the Veterans’ Employment Commitment and The Pledge at a Gold level in partnership with Soldier On. Through this, we help bring about positive change by supporting veterans and their families to secure long-term, meaningful employment.
