Inclusion, diversity and supporting the rights of all humans are key values for the Transform Consulting team. We believe that actions speak louder than words and we seek to actively demonstrate our belief that diverse perspectives, diverse identities, diverse lived experiences, in short diverse people, bring richness and depth to all endeavours.

D&I at Treasury
While Chief Human Resources Officer at Queensland Treasury, Sue led significant diversity and inclusion progress. Milestones include:

Collaborative development of Treasury’s Inclusion Matters statement, launched in June 2020.
Embedding D&I considerations into recruitment and selection processes to enhance employment and career prospects for diverse candidates.
Supporting Humans Rights
We believe in the basic rights of all humans represented through the shared values of dignity, fairness, equality, respect and independence. These values are defined and protected by the Qld Human Rights Act 2019.
We stand against modern slavery and do not tolerate the use of child labor, forced labor, or human trafficking in any form—including slave labor, prison labor, indentured servitude, or bonded labor—in our operations or value chain.
Human Rights, Inclusion and diversity is an important part of a bigger principle for Us, and that principle is appreciating difference of all kinds. Right now, the focus needs to be on key groups who are experiencing inequity due to a specific characteristic - whether that be gender, cultural background, disability, sexual orientation or other forms of diversity. But our hope is for a society where true inclusion means that the focus on diversity as a initiative is no longer needed; inclusion is automatic and all encompassing and all forms of difference are appreciated and valued.
