Diversity and Inclusion
Reflecting the community we serve
The greatest assets of any business is its people, and Yarra Trams is no exception.
Our organisation is stronger when we create a workplace where all employees can reach their full potential and provide input on key decisions and outcomes.
Every team member makes valuable contributions to achieving our strategic objectives. Regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, cultural background, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, religious faith, political affiliation, socio-economic origin, or family responsibility, every single person is vital to the continued success of Yarra Trams.
By encouraging and celebrating a diverse and inclusive workplace, we will better reflect the communities we serve, leading to better passenger and employee experiences.
Our diversity and inclusion journey focuses on four key pillars
Gender diversity: Creating a workplace of equality, attracting talented women to our industry and providing clear pathways for career development.
Cultural fluency and inclusion: Embracing the diverse nationalities, sexual orientation and religious beliefs of our people and understanding how this shapes who we are.
Age diversity: Operating a multi-generation workforce, successfully blending new and youthful ideas with experience and wisdom of age.
Marginalised community support: Broadening opportunities for candidates from disadvantaged backgrounds by working with external partners and ensuring we have a workplace that supports our people and community to thrive.
