Diversity and Inclusion Policy Statement
The Australian College of Commerce and Management’s (ACCM College) commitment to diversity and inclusivity applies to both our internal staff and our educational stakeholders (students, employers and educational support organisations).
Our commitment to our staff
ACCM College recognises our talented and diverse workforce as a key competitive advantage.
We are committed to seeking out and retaining the finest staff to ensure outstanding support for our students and promote strong business growth and performance.
We recognise the importance of reflecting the diversity of our customers and markets in our workforce.
Diversity benefits individuals, teams, our company as a whole, and most importantly, our educational partners and stakeholders.
We recognise that each employee brings their own unique capabilities, experiences and characteristics to their work and support for our students.
The diverse capabilities that reside within our talented workforce, positions ACCM College to anticipate and fulfil the needs of our diverse students and their support network.
We value such diversity at all levels of the company in everything that we do.
Our commitment to our community
ACCM College believes in treating all people with respect and dignity.
We strive to create and foster a supportive and understanding working and learning environment in which all individuals realise their maximum potential in a positive and diverse setting.
ACCM College’s internal diversity and support for diversity encompasses differences in ethnicity, gender, language, age, sexual orientation, religion, socio-economic status, physical and mental ability, thinking styles, experience, and education.
We believe that the wide array of perspectives that results from such diversity promotes innovation, positive learning outcomes and business success.
Our commitment to inclusivity
ACCM expects all staff and members of the ACCM community to be inclusive of diversity at all times.
A major principle of this commitment is the use of inclusive language and to avoid the use of discriminatory language in all circumstances.
We believe that any language used must be appropriate and necessary to the communication and the circumstances.
