Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusionOur commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion

Belonging at Icon aims at recognising the uniqueness of all by creating a culture where team members and patients feel valued, connected, and respected. It is our focus on diversity and inclusion that specifically brings about awareness and understanding so that we are all empowered to create change and belonging in everything we do.

Our goal is to reduce inequalities by 2030 by empowering and promoting the inclusion of all irrespective of diverse characteristics and experiences. We are proud on how far we’ve come, it’s what we call creating a path of belonging. Our path represents the continuous journey we must go on, there is no end… it’s about what we do on that path that matters.

Workplace Gender Equality Agency reporting

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency is an Australian Government statutory agency that promotes and improves workplace gender equality and administers the Workplace Gender Equality Act 2012 (Act).

The main goals of the Act are to:

  • Promote and improve workplace gender equality, including equal remuneration;
  • Promote consultation between employers and employees about workplace gender equality;
  • Recognise women’s disadvantage in the workplace and help employers remove barriers;
  • Encourage employers to end gender discrimination; and
  • Boost Australian business productivity and competitiveness by advancing workplace gender equality.

Progress has been made in recent decades in Australia towards these goals, and many other countries worldwide however there is still a gender gap predominantly with earnings, career advancements and retirement/superannuation savings.

As a relevant reporting employer Icon Group reports on Gender Equality each year for our business entities. As a group, we are committed to striving for workplace gender equality ensuring that our employees are able to access and enjoy the same rewards, resources and opportunities regardless of their gender.

These reports are provided for the 2022-2023 reporting year for your review. Any comments can be addressed to WGEAreporting@iconcore.com.au
