Support for Australian Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders
Candidates are supported knowing JCU’s Vice Chancellor and senior management team are fully committed to the goals and strategies laid out in the Workforce Strategy to increase, retain and develop our Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff.
Increasing numbers of staff at JCU are undertaking cultural awareness training so members on the selection panel should have an understanding of significant cultural differences.
Employee support services
JCU provides support services to all staff and these same services are available to our Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff.
As mentioned above, JCU’s Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Workforce Strategy 2015-2020 (PDF, 2144 KB) also lays out our plans for programs that additionally support staff that identify.
SAGE (Science and Gender Equity)
SAGE is a national program promoting gender equity and diversity in science, technology engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM). It is based on the principles of the UK's Athena SWAN Charter, an evaluation and accreditation framework that addresses the improvement of gender equity policies and practices in STEMM.
JCU is one of 45 organisations participating in the SAGE Pilot of the Athena SWAN Charter, which recognises institutional capacity to eliminate gender inequity and a demonstrated commitment to bolster the hiring, promotion and retention of women, while also improving the workplace environment for people of all genders.
JCU encourages diversity
JCU has an extensive program in place to encourage diversity, examples of which include:
- Diversity messages in our recruitment advertising, such as, “We are enriched by and celebrate our workplace diversity and welcome applications from candidates of all backgrounds and abilities”.
- Extensive event calendar where JCU students and staff come together to acknowledge, celebrate and raise awareness of the diverse groups that make up our community, including Harmony Day, International Women’s Day, NAIDOC Week, Disability Action Week, IDAHOT (International Day Against Homophobia), Transphobia and Biphobia.
- Diversity training for all staff.
JCU has a comprehensive calendar of events that celebrate diversity. Joining the organisation in these activities, or participating as an invitee, is an effective way to participate in diversity focused activities. There are also many student organised events and staff are almost always welcome at these.
