Workplace Diversity & Inclusion

It is important to us that our workforce reflects the communities we serve. NSW Health Pathology is focused on being a diverse and inclusive workplace and recognises there is always more to do to ensure our people feel safe, valued and have a sense of belonging.

We provide growth, development, and learning opportunities and have strategies in place that are transforming our workforce and culture.

We’re committed to ensuring culturally and psychologically safe and inclusive workplaces, and to seeing this standard reflected in the care and services we provide to patients and customers.

Our priorities are to provide an inclusive:

  • Inclusive leadership
  • Gender and sexual diversity
  • Disability inclusion
  • Accessibility and communication
  • Flexible working
  • Accessible services
  • Patient safety.

NSW Health Pathology strives to be an inclusive organisation for all of us

We understand it’s our responsibility to ensure:

  • LGBTQIA+ people (people with diverse genders and sexualities) experience equal health outcomes and;
  • LGBTQIA+ patients and carers experience comfortable, respectful pathology services.

NSW Health Pathology’s LGBTQIA+ Strategy in action

Our Strategy addresses the needs of people with diverse genders and sexualities and focuses on improving services for transgender (trans), non-binary and intersex people.

We’re introducing a range of changes to create inclusive services for people with diverse genders and sexualities including:

  • working with LGBTQIA+ staff to make positive improvements to our workplace culture that enhance their sense of safety and belonging to NSWHP
  • staff education focusing on simple things we can all do – such as using appropriate verbal and written communication – to ensure people with diverse genders and sexualities feel safe and respected in our care and in our workplaces
  • reviewing and updating internal systems and policies to increase equity, remove barriers and support the inclusion and wellbeing of people with diverse genders and sexualities, and
  • important additions to our laboratory and information systems to ensure we’re capturing accurate information and respecting people’s chosen names and their gender.
