The Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development is committed to treating all employees, clients and partners fairly and with respect, providing opportunities and quality service to all.

Our department has a strong focus on ensuring equity and diversity within the workplace and in our service delivery.

We aspire to be a leader in the delivery of a healthy, inclusive, respectful and rewarding workplace and value the contribution of each and every employee from diverse backgrounds and experiences.

Our department is an equal opportunity employer and we are committed to policies and programs which ensure that people possessing equivalent skills and qualifications have an equal chance of obtaining a position or advancing within our department.

We respect and value the different skills and experiences people bring to our workplace, as well as being aware of the challenges faced by some people. We hope to build on the richness of equity and diversity to support a positive work environment through our Reconciliation Action Plan, Disability Access and Inclusion Plan and the development of an integrated Workforce and Diversity Plan.

Our department is also committed to substantive equality, which means providing services in ways that consider people with differing needs, to create equitable outcomes for all Western Australians. We do this by ensuring our services are designed and delivered in ways that meet the diverse needs of our clients.
