Recommendation 41: Board learning through reflective practice

The recommendation

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:

  1. have shaped workforce equality experience in practice and Board governance and oversight of this issue
  2. are likely to influence implementation of reforms and continual improvement
  3. 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
