Gender equality in the workplace is an important aspect of the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman’s three-year Equality Diversity and Inclusion strategy. For the fourth year in a row, the TIO is proud to announce our compliance with the Gender Equality Act (2012), having recently completed the annual report to the Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA).

The WGEA works collaboratively with employers providing advice, practical tools and education to promote and improve gender equality in Australian workplaces.

Ombudsman Judi Jones is proud of the inclusiveness of her office, where people are put first. “We respect all kinds of diversities and are absolutely committed to being inclusive. We recruit, develop, compensate, and promote people regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, national origin, sex, disability, age or life experience.

“We encourage our employees to bring their authentic selves to work by supporting, celebrating, and thriving on all our differences.”

Complying with the Workplace Gender Equality Agency requirements, the TIO has completed its report for 2019-2020. The report provides information on employees, the Board, support available for flexible working, and our workplace policies such as policies on sexual harassment and provision for employees affected by family violence.
