Diversity, equality and inclusion

At ARPANSA, we are committed to the principles of diversity, equality and inclusion. At its core, this means we are building an increasingly diverse organisation and work culture − one where staff can do their best work, feel a sense of belonging and can be their unique and best selves.

ARPANSA recognises that a diverse and inclusive workforce improves the experience of staff and enhances our interactions with our clients and each other. It builds organisational capability by bringing a diversity of approaches to the way we collaborate, brought about by having a broader spectrum of perspectives, and greater empathy and connection with each other.

ARPANSA’s approach to realising the benefits of diversity, equality and inclusion is characterised by focus and accountability. To support this, the Executive Group is championing outcome-driven diversity, equality and inclusion initiatives by participating in networks and presenting at awareness-raising events. 

To realise this vision we have committed to five areas of focus and accountability:

  1. First Nations people
  2. gender equality
  4. cultural and linguistic diversity 
  5. ability and neurodiversity.

Each focus area has target outcomes that aim to achieve real change, and measures that quantify progress on change realisation. In making positive change, we will:

  • leverage ideas and programs that deliver impactful outcomes
  • make time to involve staff in the co-design, implementation and communication of initiatives
  • focus our efforts on activities that enable a measurable shift in results.

Join us today to help us achieve it – see our Careers page for potential job opportunities at ARPANSA.

Australian Public Service Census - 2023 results

Each year, ARPANSA staff participate in the Australian Public Service Census – a survey of employees’ perceptions of their work environment including wellbeing, safety, productivity and leadership.

The APS Employee Census is an annual survey which is used to collect confidential attitude and opinion information from APS employees on important issues in the workplace. It is administered to all APS employees and is an opportunity for employees to tell the Australian Public Service Commissioner and Agency heads what they think about working in the APS.

The census results help us to develop strategies to build capability across our workforce and ensure efficiency and quality of all activities.

ARPANSA works with staff to take an in-depth look at these results to develop measurable actions for continuous improvement as shown in our APS Census action plan. Alongside this analysis, we have also conducted a safety culture assessment to develop a comprehensive picture of ARPANSA’s safety culture. This initiative supports our role in applying best practice regulation in line with recommendations from the International Atomic Energy Agency.
