Our Workforce

Employment Strategy

More than half the workforce at MDAS is of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background. 

Detailed data about the MDAS workforce can be viewed in our 2015 Worforce Review.

Our MDAS Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy demonstrates the commitment by MDAS to Closing the Gap by:

  • Providing a resilient workforce with high Aboriginal employment and demonstrated cultural competency for non-Aboriginal Employees
  • Developing and establishing a consulting service to provide advice and support to external organisations and service providers on developing Aboriginal Employment Strategies and engaging Aboriginal people in their workforce
