At Apra Australia, diversity and inclusion are the core values of our organisation. As an organisation that serves professionals working within the philanthropic sector, Apra believes it has a responsibility to our society and our sector to develop and maintain a diverse organisation that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve. We recognize that many of the institutions served by Apra’s members have prioritized diversity and inclusion, and we want our efforts to amplify and support those organisational priorities. We believe that the wide array of perspectives resulting from diversity and inclusion allows all organisations to be more effective.
By increasing diversity and inclusion, we believe we will access more expansive and varied ideas, information and perspectives and leverage the unique contributions of diverse individuals and organisations. Apra welcomes members at any point in their career, from any context, and who represent a range of backgrounds, thoughts, approaches, and experiences. Further, we recognize that the responsibility for excellence, diversity, and inclusion lies with all of us: the board, Apra staff, volunteers and members.
