To actively support safe and inclusive environments across South Australia, Credit Union SA has signed up to the WE’RE EQUAL initiative of the Commissioner for Equal Opportunity.
WE’RE EQUAL helps local businesses show that they have made a commitment to zero tolerance for discrimination, bullying, and harassment by signing and displaying a Statement of Commitment, and communicating their stance to customers, staff, contractors, and suppliers.
Credit Union SA Chief Executive Officer, Todd Roberts said “as proud a South Australia business we’re really excited to support this important initiative.
“We had no hesitation in signing up to the WE’RE EQUAL Statement of Commitment, as we absolutely embrace inclusion across all facets of our business and are committed to an open and inclusive society.
“We strongly believe that providing an environment that allows our team members to thrive and bring their whole selves to work is a corner stone of our employee value proposition and in turn, means that they bring their best selves to their interactions with our members and community.
“There are many great things we do as an organisation to demonstrate our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and this initiative brings all of that together. We are 100% dedicated to continue showing this to our members, staff, suppliers and community.
“I strongly believe everyone should be safe from discrimination and I was delighted to have the opportunity on behalf of Credit Union SA to sign our Statement of Commitment and join WE’RE EQUAL, because we are.”
Equal Opportunity Commissioner Jodeen Carney joined Credit Union SA for the signing of the Statement of Commitment.
“I’m delighted that Credit Union SA has joined the WE’RE EQUAL initiative”, Ms Carney said.
“By joining WE’RE EQUAL, Credit Union SA demonstrates an admirable commitment to diversity and inclusion.
“Credit Union SA’s commitment to its membership community, its workers, and contractors and suppliers is leading the way in the South Australian financial sector.”
