    Message from the Director-General and the Commission Chief Executive

    The Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC) and Public Service Commission (PSC) are pleased to continue our journey in creating real and lasting change by promoting inclusion and diversity in all its forms.

    Our agencies continue to strive for a workplace and culture that better reflects and supports the diverse communities we serve. DPC and PSC are committed to a future where people with disabilities have full economic and social participation, and the important role we play in leading and contributing to policies, programs and projects that are inclusive of all Queenslanders and our employees.

    The Department of the Premier and Cabinet and Public Service Commission Disability Service Plan 2021–2022 (DSP), continues to recognise our collective responsibility for ensuring services and systems are more inclusive for all Queenslanders, which builds upon our previous plans of 2017–2020 and 2020–2021.

    Key achievements from 2020–21 include:

      PSC developed and published the sector’s Inclusion and diversity strategy 2021–2025, and the Disabling the barriers to employment in the Queensland public sector implementation plan 2021
    • contributions to the roll-out of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) including the introduction and passing of the Disability Services and Other Legislation (NDIS) Amendment Act 2019.
    • inception of the Diversity and Inclusion Consultative Committee—consolidating all DPC diversity working groups to drive a culture of inclusion through collaboration and consultation
    • delivery of relevant and targeted disability awareness programs to support the recruitment and development of people with disability, including Unconscious Bias training and Disability Awareness training

    We look forward to making progress on the actions highlighted in our plan over the next 12 months, and to continue to work within our agencies, across the sector and with our federal colleagues to increases opportunities for people with disability.
