Workforce Diversity

SPG champions workforce diversity as a significant contributor to the success and prosperity of the Australian society.

Friendly Nation Initiative is a business-led strategy established to increase the employment of refugees in Australia and encourages Australian businesses to provide employment, mentoring, internship and work experience opportunities to refugees. The Friendly Nation Initiative developed the Australian Employer’s Guide to Hiring Refugees in partnership with Tent Partnership for Refugees.

SPG developed the Discovery Diversity campaign to raise awareness of Australia’s history as a migrant nation and strengthen inclusion. The initiative brought together some of Australia’s most eminent business leaders for a national television campaign to promote the economic benefits of Australia’s cultural diversity.
