As a department, it is a priority to transform our culture to be more diverse, inclusive and respectful.
Having a diverse and inclusive workforce ensures our future viability. It ensures QFES is representative of our communities and understand their service delivery needs.
To this end, the Commissioner has released the
QFES Statement of Cultural Intent.
This statement outlines what to expect as a department in our dealings with each other and those we serve in our communities.
It ensures we align our actions and behaviours with our core values and that we work as one department respecting and embracing differences in thought, background, skills, expertise, experience and perspectives, to deliver safe and resilient communities.
By championing a culture of inclusion and welcoming a diversity of opinion and perspective, we will ensure we are sustainable into the future and prosper as a department.
