Staff Equity

Curtin promotes an organisational culture that values equal employment opportunity (EEO) and diversity, where the work environment is free from harassment, and from unlawfully discriminatory employment practices against employees or potential employees. Curtin's Equal Opportunity Policy and Diversity Policy and related Procedures can be accessed through the Policies website.

Employment practices recognise and, where appropriate, include measures intended to achieve equality of opportunity for people from EEO Target Groups (Indigenous Australian Peoples, People with Disabilities, People from Cultural and Linguistically Diverse Backgrounds and Women in Non-Traditional Areas). The Diversity in Workplace Procedures, and the Employment of Indigenous Australian Peoples Procedures can be accessed through the Policies website. The University's Reconciliation Action Plan 2014-2017 also articulates ways in which Curtin seeks to embed reconciliation into the core business of the University, focusing on teaching, learning and research and the engagement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous staff and students in reciprocal relationships.

All staff are responsible for informing themselves of their obligations and responsibilities in relation to Equal Opportunity (EO). You can find out the responsibilities specific to your role in the University by accessing the Compliance Framework.

All staff are required to complete EO training and to refresh this every two years.

The EESJ Services team are available to assist you in interpreting and applying EEO in your work. Please contact Ethics Equity and Social Justice for information in relation to EEO matters.
