Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEI&B) at Cenitex 

At Cenitex we embrace diversity and are committed to celebrating, advancing and fostering a workplace that is genuinely inclusive. We recognise we have an important role to play being part of both the Victorian Public Sector and the technology industry.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging council

Our DEI&B council is supported by the efforts of six passionate employee led reference groups. We work to foster initiatives to remove barriers, provide opportunities and empower all people within our organisation.

Reconciliation Action Plan

Commencing in June 2024, for a 12-month period, our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a program Cenitex will implement to build on the core principles of Relationships, Respect and Opportunities to connect people with the cultural importance of community and kinship central to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander life.

The Cenitex Reconciliation Action Plan is endorsed by Reconciliation Australia.

Gender Equality Action Plan

At Cenitex we are proud to have the inaugural Gender Equality Action Plan formally endorsed by the Victorian Commission for Gender Equality.

The Cenitex Diversity and Inclusion Council continues to support, advance and foster a workplace where people feel safe to be themselves. After months of planning, staff consultations and analysis of survey data, the employee led Gender Equality stream members developed a set of guiding actions contained in the plan. These actions are for people to use as a roadmap to improve outcomes for all employees, suppliers and customers.

Our Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging Streams

Our five streams focus on initiatives that bring together all staff to discuss and celebrate occasions of significance. Our six streams are:

The stream champions building a respective and inclusive workplace which is culturally safe for all employees including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Cultural Connection
Reflecting our community, Cenitex has many staff with different cultural identities. The stream regularly get together to promote many cultural events close to their hearts.

The stream promotes action items to increase the representation of, and remove barriers for, people with disability at Cenitex and the wider Victorian Public Service. The stream provides guidance on ways to ensure inclusive practices are promoted and adopted within our organisation. View our Action Plan here.

Gender Equality
Having recently developed the inaugural Gender Equality Action Plan, there is a tremendous amount for the stream to focus on to promote gender equality and the opportunities of women, men and trans and gender diverse people.

Cenitex is a partner of the Victorian Public Service Pride Network. We are proud to champion workplace inclusion for LGBTIQ+ employees and their allies.
