Equality and Diversity

Key Assets is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion in all that we do. For us equality, diversity and inclusion includes Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander’s, people who identify as LGBTI, people of all ages, people with a disability and those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

We work hard to deliver on this commitment and in 2015 Key Assets was recognised as Small Employer of the Year in the Pride in Diversity Australian Workplace Equality Index. The Core Assets Group has ranked in the Top 100 Stonewall Employers for 5 years running. We launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan in 2015.

We take care to ensure our recruitment practices reflect the diverse culture we promote throughout our organisation. Job descriptions and person specifications are prepared for every vacancy, applicants are shortlisted against these and selection decisions are made on the basis of merit.

Our recruitment, support and training of our employees and foster carers reflects our commitment to having a range of employees and foster families sufficiently diverse to meet the ethnic, racial, cultural, linguistic and religious needs of children and young people requiring placement. This also includes needs relating to disability, gender, religion or sexual orientation.

Our policies, procedures and practices are developed with equality, diversity and inclusion in mind so as to achieve a clear and consistent focus on equality of opportunity.

Key Assets is a member of the Diversity Council of Australia, Jobs Australia and Pride in Diversity.
