Diversity and inclusion

Graphic of blue and yellow handsIllawarra Shoalhaven Local Health District (ISLHD) has an ingrained culture of diversity and inclusion. Our culture is made up of our people’s attitudes and behaviours, which reflect our shared values, experiences and aspirations. Everyone has the opportunity to succeed irrespective of ethnicity, generation, flexible work status, sexual orientation or disability. Our culture influences how we interact with our colleagues, patients and the broader community.

We believe our diversity of thought, backgrounds and experiences strengthens relationships and delivers meaningful benefits to our people, patients and community. It also makes ISLHD a vibrant and interesting place to work. 

ISLHD is committed to the provision and support of an inclusive, diverse workplace.
