Published today, ‘Acknowledging the lived experience of Aboriginal employees’ is an online publication of data and insights about the experiences of Aboriginal employees in the Victorian public sector.
The Victorian Public Sector Commission, in partnership with the Department of Premier and Cabinet’s First Peoples – State Relations group, developed this publication to understand the experiences of Aboriginal employees and accelerate the conversation about how the public sector can ensure a culturally safe workplace.
It combines data from the 2022 People Matter survey with insights from focus groups with Aboriginal executives, managers and employees from 14 different public sector organisations.
The publication covers a wide range of workplace issues experienced by Aboriginal employees, including:
- impacts of cultural load
- racism, discrimination and disrespect
- not feeling safe to speak up
- recruitment, career development and retention.
