At Life Without Barriers, we celebrate diversity, and we practice inclusion. We believe in the strength of a diverse workforce where the perspectives and life experiences of our people help us build strong relationships with the people we support.
Diversity refers to all the ways in which we differ. 1 This includes culture, ethnicity, faith, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, intersex status, relationship status, and lived experience.
Inclusion occurs when a diversity of people are respected, connected, progressing, and contributing to organisational success. We asked our employees what it really means to be included at Life Without Barriers.
Our recent work
In February 2021, we celebrated our annual D&I Week with the theme 'I Belong'. We explored what it means to belong through a series of virtual events. We also invited employees to share their diversity information and workplace inclusion experiences with us through our first D&I Survey.
In January 2021, we released an Inclusive Language Guide to promote the use of inclusive language across Life Without Barriers. We want the way we communicate with each other, and as an organisation, to be respectful and inclusive.
