Diversity and inclusion

We believe a diverse and inclusive Australia encourages better relationships within communities and the workplace alike.


In 2020, women represented 36.9 per cent of our workforce and 38.4 percent of our senior managers. Our executive team has 44.4% female representation as does the Australia Post Board.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders

Just over 1,100 employees or 3.0 per cent of our employees identify as Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander or both at 30 June 2020.


We proudly welcome and support people of any sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status. Some of our achievements include PostPride, network growth and sponsorship.

Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD)

At 30 June 2020, 30 per cent of our workforce were from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Our workforce is made up of people from 147 nations and 65 languages are spoken by people across our workforce.

People with a disability

We employed more than 2,000 people with disability at 30 June 2020. This represents 5.7 per cent of our total workforce.


Dog safety campaign

Specialised training programs have been trialled to teach posties how to read a dog's body language and safely manage canine encounters.

As a result, our posties have changed the way they interact with dogs.

Volunteering and workplace giving

We encourage our employees to contribute to the concerns and causes that are important to them through our Workplace Giving and Volunteering programs.
