Recommendation 41: Board learning through reflective practice
The Ambulance Victoria Board should undertake a reflective, facilitated workshop to review and discuss how the drivers of discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying and victimisation identified in this report:
- have shaped workforce equality experience in practice and Board governance and oversight of this issue
- are likely to influence implementation of reforms and continual improvement
- may affect other, interdependent aspects of organisational performance.
Such reflective practice should be built into regular, annual strategic reviews at the Board and Executive Committee level.
What we are doing
- Engage a provider to develop reflective practice methodology and facilitate reflective practice workshop for the Board
Where we are up to
- In mid-2022, AV engaged an expert to develop a framework to support regular and ongoing reflective practice at a Board and organisational level, to enable reflection on the key drivers of unlawful and harmful workplace conduct in AV, sense-making related to the Commission’s findings and ownership of new ways of working to ensure a safe, fair and inclusive organisation going forward.
- In addition to starting work to deliver the framework, the consultant is preparing to facilitate a number of individual discussions and joint Board workshops to enable reflective practice.
