Diversity and Inclusivity

We at Providence pay respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first peoples and Traditional Custodians of Australia. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this land. We acknowledge the rich and diverse cultures and countries and their long history as work across various countries within Australia. We appreciate the importance of maintaining the rich cultures, values and beliefs and the ongoing connection with the land. We are committed to diversity and continuing to learn about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Statement:

Providence leverages a company-wide awareness and acceptance of diversity to foster a greater understanding and inclusivity of all people. Providence will develop and foster acceptance and inclusivity of all and will leverage experiences of diverse peoples as a pathway to inclusiveness of people from all races, cultures, gender identity and religion.   As an Australian business, and recognising the experiences of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, we will increase educational awareness of Australia’s history as a foundation and extend the learning about multicultural diversity.

Our commitment:

We are committed to embedding diversity and inclusion in our company as it is integral to our culture, our values and the way we do business. We are committed to understanding and supporting the needs of our employees and clients where we value individuality. We understand diversity and inclusion is a journey and we are committed to the journey through revisiting our Diversity and Inclusion Plan regularly, making adjustments over time and by being accountable.
