Our policies are inclusive and apply to all staff, regardless of their sexuality, gender identity or gender expression. We actively encourage staff to express the gender identity they are comfortable with. This includes their choice of business clothes and access to the facilities they feel comfortable using (including all-gender restrooms), preferred/known as name, preferred pronouns and dedicated paid leave for staff who undertake gender affirmation.
Same-sex couples can access the same partner and child-related leave as other staff. Some examples of this are Parental leave and Carer's leave for all the following:
During the year, we celebrate days of significance like 12 Days of StandOUT, International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT), and Wear It Purple Day. Additionally, we are involved in other community events and initiatives.
