Disability inclusion in the NSW public sector 


Practical strategies and tools to ensure people bring their complete selves to work. 

ABOUT THIS EVENT 

The Premier has committed to 5.6 per cent of government sector roles being held by people with a disability by 2025. It is also agreed that the public sector needs to take a leadership role in building inclusive workplaces as we can’t appreciate citizens’ concerns unless we understand and reflect them.  

But despite overt attempts to recruit people with disability, feedback suggests that the public sector still has ways to go before it is a truly inclusive culture. 

This masterclass provides an opportunity to learn how to remove barriers to employment and the building blocks to developing blocks to capability in disability inclusion.  

The presenters will explore how to make adjustments and design jobs in which employees with disability can thrive.  

They will also provide tips for overcoming awkward conversations as well as strategies for performance management and development. 

WHY YOU SHOULD REGISTER

This masterclass has been specifically designed to give you the practical strategies and tools to develop a more inclusive culture in your organisation.

It is an opportunity to explore the issues your workplaces and workers face. It will also give you hands on experience to develop tips and tools to find solutions and ways forward.

All IPAA events include purposeful networking which allows you to: 

  • Build relationships with the speaker/s and fellow guests
  • Develop your capabilities
  • Establish connections across the NSW public sector.

SPEAKER

Gail Le Bransky
Director, Disability Employment
NSW Public Service Commission


Gail Le Bransky is a passionate advocate and national thought leader on inclusive customer service, with a strong focus on culture change and digital transformation. She is current seconded to the NSW Public Service Commission (PSC) where she is leading a range of initiatives to deliver the Premier’s Priority to increase proportion of government sector roles held by people with disability to 5.6% by 2025.

Prior to joining the PSC, Gail was the Director, Social Policy at Transport for NSW where she championed a customer focused approach to delivering accessible transport services across NSW. In this role she achieved cultural change and innovation to provide a universally accessible transport system, including Future Transport 2056 strategies to address transport disadvantage and the development of technology solutions for customers with disability. Her work resulted in the highest standards of accessibility for the Sydney Metro, Sydney and Newcastle Light Rails and new inter-city and regional rail fleets and Harbour City Ferries. 

She improved product and engagement models for customers with a disability and older people in the Opal ticketing system roll-out to the Greater Sydney, Wollongong, Newcastle and Blue Mountains regions and revised several schemes designed to alleviate cost of living pressures and in doing so significantly improved engagement with key customer stakeholders.

Gail has contributed internationally as a member of the US Transportation Research Board’s International Committee on Accessible Transportation and Mobility and worked with the OECD as Australia’s representative on an expert group on cost benefits of accessible transportation.

She has been recognised for services to Transport, receiving the Public Service Medal in 2019 and the Transport for NSW Secretary’s Award for Individual Excellence in 2018.
