DEECD Supports Same Sex Attracted Teachers
This new publication outlines the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development's commitment to supporting same sex attracted staff. The guide looks at the legal responsibilities of schools as well as looking at how schools can support their same sex attracted, lesbian, gay or bisexual staff members. It ends with some useful case study scenarios to illustrate the meaning of the policies.
The document states;
"The Department is committed to diversity and inclusion in providing the highest level of service to the Victorian community and in reflecting the diversity of the community across its workforce. Providing workplaces which are safe, supportive and inclusive of same‐sex attracted (gay, lesbian and bisexual) employees helps to build a culture of respect and dignity for all. Same‐sex attracted employees are entitled to fully participate in their workplace without fear of offensive, harassing, bullying or discriminatory behaviour."
