APRA AMCOS' first Equity Action Plan
The development of our first Equity Action Plan stems from our ongoing focus on how we can work together to embed diversity and deliberate inclusion in our work practices and in how we engage with our external stakeholders
Diversity Arts Australia (DARTS) Partnership
Early in 2021 we partnered with Diversity Arts Australia (DARTS) to lead our organisationthrough a Diversity Audit and develop an Equity Action Plan to guide our work in this space.
In March 2021, a 125+ question survey was provided to DARTS to undertake a Diversity Audit. The results highlighted strengths and areas where we could improve across key sections covering training, policies, leadership, consultation, employment, programming, First Nations engagement, CALD engagement, disabled engagement and marketing.
Training and mentoring sessions
From March to June 2021, DARTS facilitated more than 20 training and mentor sessions to learn about inclusive practices.
APRA AMCOS staff and the APRA AMCOS Boards were given the opportunity to participate in key sessions covering cultural safety, Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) communities and ableism.
Training sessions and targeted mentor sessions provided APRA’s cross functional Steering Committee with the tools to develop goals, actions, outcomes and evaluation measures to feed into the Equity Action Plan proposal.
