Gender, Disability and Other Cross-Cutting Issues
AAI seeks to attract eligible applicants from a broad and diverse range of backgrounds. To support diversity, AAI encourages eligible applications from women and from people with disabilities, people from DFAT Geographic Focus Areas and other disadvantaged groups. AAI’s Gender, Disability and Social Inclusion Strategy adopts an approach that considers multiple identities, seeks to address potential discrimination points, and favour solutions that are aligned with the concept of intersectionality when possible.
