The Human Rights Month campaign of the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland (ADCQ) will run from 10 November until International Human Rights Day on 10 December. The aim is to create inclusive workplaces where the human rights principles of fairness, respect, equality and dignity are promoted and are part of an organisation's everyday goals and behaviour. This year's key topics are: Mentally healthy workplaces and Flexibility at work.
Mental illness can be a part of every workplace - we know that almost one in two Australians will experience mental illness in their lifetime. Fostering a culture of fairness and inclusion not only supports people who are suffering from mental illness, but can also go a long way to preventing the onset of mental health issues for other employees.
Flexibility at work can create an inclusive work culture where individual needs are recognised and supported where possible. It is no longer just about parents seeking part-time work to balance their family responsibilities.
All DET employees can access flexible work arrangement resources via the Queensland Government website.
During the month all DET employees are encouraged to share positive stories about how their schools/workplaces are supporting mentally healthy practices and/or flexible work arrangements to Diversity.HUMANRES@det.qld.gov.au.
View and share the campaigns messages and resources. Access the conversation starters, debunk myths, make a team or individual pledge, display posters, read FAQs and watch informative videos. Visit the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland website for more information.
