The University is committed to providing career and employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Plan 2022-2024 (pdf, 3.9MB) complements the work of the One Sydney, Many People Strategy 2021-2024 and commits the University to increasing employment and development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff.
Developed in partnership with people across the University, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and students, the plan sets out a program of 35 initiatives to identify and remove employment barriers and provide practical ways for different areas to support, recruit and retain Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across the institution.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Plan 2022-2024 focuses on the following four key objectives:
- Community engagement – the University of Sydney is recognised as an employer of choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
- Career attraction, development and progression – creating career pathways from entry-level to senior level in both professional and academic areas, with visible opportunities for career attraction, development, and progression.
- Workplace culture and experience – a University culture that is inclusive and culturally safe.
- Accountability and best practice – leadership that embeds cultural capabilities and respect in policies and practices within their work areas.
