Roop has recently taken on the position as executive sponsor of the new culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) employee network. She has a real passion for creating a culturally safe and inclusive workplace for all staff.
“With more than a quarter of our staff identifying as having a CALD background, this network aims to bring them together and talk about their experiences,” she said.
“We want to create a network where CALD staff can come together and have a voice, feel valued and supported.”
From 15-21 March NSLHD will be celebrating Harmony Week. It is a time to celebrate Australia’s cultural diversity and think about inclusiveness, respect and belonging for all Australians.
Keep your eye out for activities taking place across the district – and wear something orange on Friday 19 March to recognise the celebration.
