The Royal Melbourne Hospital is committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion.
This is an important part of achieving our vision of advancing health for everyone, every day.
The first RMH Workforce Equity and Inclusion Audit was completed in 2021 to help identify strengths and areas for improvement in relation to diversity, equity and inclusion for those who work at the RMH. The results of this audit informed the development of a draft Action Plan, which was shared widely with our staff for further feedback and refinement.
The Commission for Gender Equality in the Public Sector reviewed both our audit and action plan, and found them to be compliant with our obligations under the Gender Equality Act 2020.
This is a dynamic and iterative plan. Ongoing consultation and engagement with staff and further data analysis will shape our work as we continue to review and refine our efforts over the life of this Action Plan. However the central objective will remain: to do our very best to provide a great place to work for people of all backgrounds and identities. Because we understand the impact this can have on our staff, our patients, and our community.
