Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access

Our purpose

The Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access portfolio provides leadership on supporting an inclusive and diverse city, where all community members are treated equally with dignity and respect.

The portfolio will aim to implement these core values across all of our current and future policies, plans, strategies and facilities. It also works to foster respect, celebrate diversity, promote participation and create accessible places and spaces.

This portfolio seeks to ensure some of our most vulnerable and marginalized members of the community are afforded the same respect and opportunities of the rest of the population, and will work closely with the immediate community to support the disabled, ageing, indigenous, multicultural and LGBTIQ communities.
