Diversity and Inclusion

IPC Diversity and Action Plan 2021 - 2023

The Information and Privacy Commission NSW (IPC) has published its Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan for 2021 - 2023. The Plan provides a three-year strategic road map to improve the way we communicate with, and deliver services to, the diverse communities of NSW. It also identifies way the IPC can create an inclusive workplace.

Adopting a consolidated approach to cover disability, multicultural services and Aboriginal engagement, the Plan has been jointly endorsed by the CEO/Information Commissioner, Ms Elizabeth Tydd and NSW Privacy Commissioner, Ms Samantha Gavel:

"As a modern independent regulator, the IPC is always seeking innovative and strategic ways to better support our regulated sectors in best practice information management and privacy protection for the benefit of the NSW community. Attracting, recruiting and retaining high quality and diverse staff is essential to meeting our strategic goals and future challenges. The IPC Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan 2021 – 2023 outlines how the organisation will work with its diverse stakeholders to better deliver on its strategic goals to champion the right to access government information and protect privacy as enshrined in the legislation we administer. The Plan also seeks to support and instil a workplace culture that values diversity in skills and perspectives and offers fair and inclusive work practices for all staff," Ms Tydd and Ms Gavel said. 

The actions in the Plan will be monitored regularly and reported on in the IPC Annual Report as required under the Annual Reports (Departments) Act 1985.
