Diversity and Inclusion.

Cultural reform undertaken through Pathway to Change: Evolving Defence Culture 2017-2022 continues to embed workplace norms and behaviours that support Defence people. Defence will continue to progress initiatives to improve our workplace culture, including the development of targeted diversity action plans, including disability in the workplace, LGBTI+, cultural and linguistic diversity, and Indigenous reconciliation.

Gender equality and women’s empowerment in Defence are critical to both our Defence capability and our national and global security. Defence must continue its progress towards being an exemplar in attracting, training, retaining and providing career opportunities for women. Measures to increase women’s participation and leadership in Defence must continue to evolve to reflect the contemporary reality of women’s professional and personal lives.

Defence will further increase the participation and advancement of women through strategies focussed on leadership, targeted mentoring, education, training and career development. The Women in ADF Report will continue to be prepared annually to provide government, and the Australian public with a measure of our progress.

We will also continue Defence’s implementation of the Australian National Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security 2012–2018.

A more diverse workforce and inclusive culture will enhance Defence’s capability and effectiveness as an organisation, and support our continuous improvement efforts by ensuring that our workforce profiles reflect the Australian community that we serve.

 
Meanwhile and, methinks, related, the ABC has just posted a fake news ‘report’ claiming that “soldiers” – plural – have been traumatised by their “deployment” to… Melbourne… and its hotels. The entire ‘report’, however, is based on the testimony of one person. He complains the Melbourne tour was worse than an overseas combat deployment. Somebody chopper in Colonel Trautman to talk him down.

    Their fannies bleed, men root them and babbies come from them?

    Old lady friend of mine joined up years ago, most fantastic pair of norks Ive even had the pleasure of handling (as a spotty teenager).

    She was in the ADF for 6 or so years and didnt finish basic training.
    Kept getting preggers.
    Its a mystery.

    It’s like an infestation of fleas, one of the ex-wife’s cats brought home fleas. Foolishly tried to get rid of them myself and failed miserably, had to call the pest control to eradicate them while we stayed in a hotel.

    It’s the same with all this cultural marxist bullshit, the idea it can be tolerated or defeated at the ballot box is bunk, requires wholesale fumigation.

  6. alans

    who writes this drivel? obviously, like all levels of the public service, the ADF is both top heavy with Generals who couldn’t organise a fuck in a brothel, and a whole layer of underlings whose only duty is to put forward turgid efforts like this.

    Diverse workforce and inclusive culture will enhance Defences capability and effectiveness as an organisation. How so?
    More social workers and foreign language interpreters? More cease fire negotiators?

    They tried this crap in Victoriastan, hiring Asian girls weighing 50 kg into the police force and ambulance service. Turned out they weren’t too good or interested in throwing drug-addled crims onto the ground, or carrying obese people on stretchers up muddy embankments in the rain at midnight. Why are politicians becoming more stupid?

    To support these targets the enemy will be required to lose battles in a 50:50 ratio.
    Any noncompliance by the enemy will be punished by an 8000lb Twitter mob.

    Piss-simple.

    More pretty female clerks and non-obviously white males in fatigues anddress uniforms in Canberrastan and the State HQ and recruiting offices makes the bugmen all happy in their speshul places.

    In the meantime, all the Anglo boys and Anglo girls continue to get funneled into the worming and fighting units.

    The stupid ones (both sexes) continue to wreck themselves in Arms Corps jobs theybwere woefully unsuited to, and waste everyone’s time.

    The smart ones who can maintain the requirements of Arms Corps jobs do their bit without fuss.

    The smart ones who can’t Corps/Trade transfer or find something else.to do with themselves until ther enlistment obligation runs out.

    Everyone quips, jokes and grumbles about the Pineapple…

    And lo, despite the mandarins’ best efforts, Army carries on and somehow does its job reasonably effectively. Every so often, it wins a few battles and has to cringe ceremonially while the bugmen attempt to throw their shoes at it…

    Might as well surrender now that way no-one gets hurt

  20. Behind Enemy Lines

    I just finished learning that Qantas’ AIDS-ridden garden gnome of a CEO has decided (on behalf of the country) that we will each need a Kung Flu Passport to fly on his national carrier. Now I read on the Cat that the bag-lady lesbian collective in charge of national defence has decided that diggers need to be more weak, more frightened and more queer . . . although of course they’ll never be weak, frightened or queer enough. Well, stuff that for a joke. The US is in trouble, China is looking for trouble, and our political class are busy adjusting each others’ rainbow panties. Australia is ****ed. There is no voting our way out of this. Sure, the incompetent hacks in the political class will be just fine, looking after each other with more and more of our money along with whatever stipend Beijing has them on. But the rest of us had better smarten up quickly and start looking out for ourselves as individuals.

    Mack I live in Victoria and Vicpol are strenuously still trying to employ 50 kilo girls. All I can think of is the Land of Oz and the Lullaby League and the Lollipop Guild whenever I stand alongside one of their finest and literally tower over them at my five foot ten.
    I can also remember when we laughed at the Dutch Army with their hair nets and equal opportunity, who is laughing now?

  24. PB

    I have to assume then that the job of the Military is no longer military.

  25. miltonf

    As Kep Enderby is supposed to have said (in one of his more lucid moments)- ‘most of your decisions (as a minister) are made for you’. This destruction of the military is being driven from the pubic ‘service’. In much the same way that electricity generation is being poisoned. It takes a strong minister or PM to stand up to the pubes. Of course Payne would be totally with this anti man agenda. Payne’s been around since I was a young lib.

  26. Mark M

    So, a stealthy, rocket firing 4×4 wheel chair decorated with a rainbow paint job as the defence department latest weapon is not a rumour?

    Brilliant.

    The enemy will be either rofl, making them easy to take as prisoners, or they will have already died of laughter.

    Obviously the plan is to merge the ADF and Mardi Gras and to bamboozle all our enemies with glitter, dildoes and jock straps.

  29. BrettW

    I have no problem if the disabled are those who received their injuries whilst serving in ADF. In fact they should get priority. No problem with linguistic diversity as should help in overseas deployments if have some native speakers. Indigenous reconciliation sounds like political claptrap which should not be a concern of the ADF. If the population is 3% Indigenous then no problem if 3% of ADF.

    “including disability in the workplace, LGBTI+, cultural and linguistic diversity, and Indigenous reconciliation”.

    Why the skepticism ?

    From the relative safety of NSW, I could well believe that commie Dan & that dreadfully authoritarian Sutton, including the Stasi police force, would have been like being drop-beared into a mind numbing cluster-fuck with no holes barred.

  33. Spurgeon Monkfish III

    I’ve often wondered* when reading the preposterous gibberish above if these sorts of exercises in completely counter-intuitive wankery are actually examples of the bugman class chuckling among themselves along the lines of – “lets advocate stuffing the army full of lesbian dwarves that identify as turnips and see if anyone of any consequence actually stops and says: Hang on – this is completely bloody ridiculous.” “Nah, of course they won’t.”

    These obnoxious arseholes are playing us all for fools – and getting away with it.

    It would be bad enough if this piffle was being churned out by AI, but it’s not, it’s being produced by an army (absolutely no pun intended) of officials and contractors being paid very nice incomes with borrowed money.

    Total bloody disgrace.

  40. Whalehunt fun

    Cretins. Basically subhuman scum are in charge of Defence now. They have no entitlement to the rights of a dog.

  41. PoliticoNT

    who writes this drivel?

    Well Alans, that would be the inner-circle of the Minister’s Office, the Minister herself, and certain elements from Russell Offices. Primarily, but not restricted to the Secretary, the Associate Secretary, and no doubt one or two of the grubbier souls from Strategic Policy Division on some kind of ‘special assignment.’ There is a rumour that the Minister’s graduating thesis from CSSD (where she gave the keynote address to launch this turkey) was a 10,000 word obsession with reform within a Russell Precinct context. That is, irrelevant and pointless indulgence.

    The Minister’s keynote address (link below, I could bold the worst bits but what’s the point, it is pure, unadulterated garbage) clearly demonstrates how out of depth not only the current Minister is, but no doubt the National Security Committee of Cabinet, who would have had to given some kind of imprimatur. That said, the Minister for Defence Industry Melissa Price was heard to say at the launch, ‘Fat lot of fucking good this nonsense will do for defence jobs.’ Certainly what the speech raises is a question of culpability for the rundown not only of the ADF but of our nation’s defence resilience.

    The enemy will do the killing while our side focuses on diversity and gender.

  48. Up The Workers!

    The statement: “Never turn up with a knife, to a gunfight”, is generally taken as being an admonition to a likely loser, on what NOT to do if one’s survival is thought to be a preferable outcome.

    The current Australian Defence Farce strategy of only ever turning up to a war with a Labor-voting one-legged lesbian midget in transvestite gear, seems to be raising (or lowering) the former advice, to a finely-hewn Leftard art-form.

    Lefties – “finkin” isn’t their strong point!

  49. Up The Workers!

    To ZK2A at 12.10 a.m.:

    I have said several times before that I suspect that Marise Payne’s best value to Australia’s Defence Farces, would be if we can find somebody with the material and skills to build a trebuchet bucket big and sturdy enough to accommodate her; load her in it and then, with beady eye and extreme prejudice, aim it at an enemy.

    No idea whether it will fly, but it’s surely worth a try.

    She’d sure be a Payne to any poor sucker on the ground when she lands.

  50. Scott Osmond

    Well, as an American commenter said a couple of months back when discussing something similar on another blog I follow. With all this DIE stuff once they turn on the people they are ment to protect the revolution shouldn’t take long. If you want to know why China is acting the way they are towards us besides the usual it’s because we aren’t considered a threat. In fact we are a joke and a drain on the alliances we belong to. If and when the cold civil war in America turn hot or the yanks just walk away we will learn like Poland and Belgium the fate of small countries in a world of hungry sharks.

    They already have considerable experience in Mardi Gras marching. They march in the Sydney Mardi Gras parade….something which is shameful because the police, army, navy etc. should not be politicised like that.

  57. PoliticoNT

    There are those people who live vicariously on our SAS exploits and run for cover when things go astray…

    Let’s be blunt about ourselves (as in the entire electorate, not just the Cat Family). We loved having our Special Forces on deployment in AFG. They were out every day kicking arse and looking great. ‘Our’ SF were sexy as hell and it warmed the cockles of our hearts. Yes, it was idiotic to get them to run all of the other cordon and search work we should have been sending the infantry to do. And we knew it. But we put that niggling thought aside because the lads did well. We were there to make a difference and they did. We were there to demonstrate a little bit of moral courage. Our SF were the best of us.

    The faux moral bullshit and show-pony finger pointing we’re going through is simply the public bleating of the jealous, irrelevant and infirm of mind. Let’s keep this in mind, and remember to exhort the best of us who gave their all. As a nation they’re the ones we choose to represent us, not the golden circle of the elite.

    Reynolds was a ARes Loggie by her CV online. Was connected really early by the looks. Pure conjecture from seeing CV’s that look good and then having an opposite experience working under such. I’ll put it foward like one of her precessors (Payne) she is strong on politics and mediocre on actual substance.

    One of my neighbours is out a base, unsure of his rank but he has mentioned when I hit him up about all this PC stuff that no-one likes it, no-one will dare question it and has gotten worse since she became minister. He also reckons that there are few posting this year but the whole system is a clusterf. Apparently they use Toll who are trying to do little as possible hiding behind Covid 19 & there are glaring contradictions on who can drive interstate on leave and who can’t on posting that he said is all about money not the alleged risk.

  60. Lawrence Ayres

    I had the pleasure of serving for 28 years and in that time the ratio of generals to soldiers kept increasing. I left in 1992 and it seems the ratio is now much worse and the level of leadership deteriorating. What we need are people that carry weapons and who know how to use them. What we do not need is gender diversity particularly when it extends to the sixty plus besides males and females. No matter what the general does there will be very few queers and androgynous types clamouring to occupy a slit trench while some normal hyped up enemy male is shooting at them. Strange that our army will have all sorts while the logical enemy has all men.
