Our commitment to diversity and inclusion

At AUSTRAC, we pride ourselves on creating a working environment that values and utilises the contribution and experience of our employees from a range of diverse backgrounds.

Our AUSTRAC Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Program 2019-23 (PDF, 4.5MB) outlines how we will continue to cultivate an organisational culture where all voices are heard, respected and valued.

The initiatives, actions and targets outlined in this program reinforce our commitment to achieving an inclusive organisational culture that values the contributions, skills and knowledge of all employees.

We have taken significant strides in building a workplace that is accessible and welcoming to all. Our staff have access to a broad range of flexible work practices, and we encourage a healthy, inclusive workplace where everyone is respected and feels safe. It is important that we continue to nurture this culture of inclusion and actively look to remove barriers to workforce participation.

The program includes specific plans for:

  • workplace accessibility
  • Indigenous employment
  • gender equality
  • mature-age employees
  • LGBTIQ+ employees
  • culturally and linguistically diverse employees.

AUSTRAC is a member of the Diversity Council Australia, the Australian Disability Network, and ACON’s Pride in Diversity program. We are also ongoing participants in the Stepping Into Internship program, Women in Law Enforcement Strategy (WILES) program and the Jawun Secondment program

Reconciliation at AUSTRAC 

At AUSTRAC, we understand that reconciliation is an ongoing process. We are committed to taking meaningful action to create lasting change, both within our agency and in the communities in which we operate.

AUSTRAC’s ‘Innovate’ Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2024-2026 (PDF, 7.17MB) outlines how AUSTRAC will take action to advance the four dimensions of reconciliation: relationships, respect, opportunities, governance.

Under this plan, we aim to achieve better results in attracting, retaining, advancing and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees. We will work closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community leaders and organisations, as well as our Indigenous employees, to ensure that our efforts are inclusive and effective.
