Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

ASIO desires and requires diversity. We seek to reflect the community we protect and recognise the value of diverse thinking.

We know that inclusion fosters innovation and creativity and increases productivity. It increases employee satisfaction and retention and ensures our people are physically and psychologically safe. Inclusion promotes equal opportunity and supports our people to be their best. We want every ASIO officer to bring their unique skills, experience, perspectives and whole selves to work.

Together, diversity and inclusion are key to achieving our strategic objectives and our purpose.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2021–24 is an important instrument in ensuring that ASIO continues to meet the expectations of the Australian people, the government, our stakeholders and our partners.
