Intersex staff

We encourage a culture that is supportive of intersex employees. Having an intersex variation is an experience of bodily diversity where chromosomes, hormones, gonads, secondary sex characteristics or genitalia do not do not fit the typical binary definitions for male or female bodies. In accordance with our Equal Opportunity Policy, which aligns with the federal Sex Discrimination Act 1984, intersex status is a protected attribute. We recognise that in some circumstances intersex employees may require leave for medical reasons. You or your supervisor are encouraged to contact your HR Business Partner to discuss leave entitlements and flexible working arrangements.
