AFDO Diversity Field Officer project



DFO Logo 

The Diversity Field Officer Service has been developed by the Australian Federation of Disability Organisations (AFDO), in collaboration with Deakin University.

The Diversity Field Officer Service is an innovative employer engagement strategy focused on building the ‘disability confidence’ of business, including small and medium sized enterprises to become more welcoming, confident and accessible.

This project is different to other employment services, in that it focuses solely on the needs of the business, and we offer one to one practical strategies that are specific to each business’ needs and objectives.

We assist businesses to think about how welcoming and accessible they really are by improving current comfort around people with disability, improving their workplace culture, the customer experience, as well as current employment practices and barriers that exist in recruitment and interviewing.
