Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan

Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan (DISAP) is a strategic framework that enables GMCT to be more aware and deliberate in creating a diverse and inclusive environment for our staff and the communities we serve.

As an organisation that delivers essential services to families in need, we are dedicated to ensuring our cemeteries are safe and inclusive for all employees and visitors.

To help achieve this, GMCT is committed to creating a workforce that represents the rich diversity of Greater Melbourne’s communities and is united by mutual respect and dedication to providing compassionate service to all. Through this, we can also better understand and address the needs of all our customers.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan (DISAP) is an opportunity for GMCT to be more aware and deliberate in creating a diverse and inclusive workplace.

It provides us with a vision, mission and strategic priorities and goals, so we can continue to embrace our differences and ensure our people, and the communities we serve, feel safe, supported and that they belong.
