provides an updated three year plan for delivering on the ‘all communities, all emergencies’ approach adopted by the sector. Emergency Management Victoria (EMV) is required by legislation to maintain a rolling action plan outlining the sector’s strategic priorities and corresponding actions to achieve the vision of safer and more resilient communities.

EMV’s strategic action plan sets out priorities across four areas: communities and business, people and culture, governance, and services and systems. There is considerable concern that the Victorian emergency services lack diversity and have developed a culture that is less inclusive of staff or volunteers from diverse backgrounds. This has been identified as a key issue for the sector

observed that:

‘A more respectful and inclusive environment is also essential to encourage diversity within the fire services. The fire services must make a genuine and public commitment to understanding and addressing the very real barriers to diversity that currently exist in their organisations and act on it’ (p. 2).

‘Recommendation 7: The Review recommends that the fire services take the lead in advancing the sector’s collective effort to increase diversity in the sector, through making a genuine and public commitment to understanding and addressing harassment and discriminatory practices and behaviours in their organisations, and launching a process for doing so’ (p.32).

inclusion and diversity framework outlined four areas for intervention under the headings of lead, listen and learn, act to create opportunity, and be accountable.

Your Task:

You have been asked by EMV to develop a human resource development (HRD) strategy to address these issues of inclusion and diversity over the next 10 years. It is anticipated that the plan provides more detail for the first three years and an outline for remaining seven years. Your report should focus on one of the Victorian fire services (i.e., Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) or Country Fire Authority (CFA)) and it is envisaged that it will: (I have uploaded to you)

·     
identify suitable (evidence-based) contemporary HRD approaches for supporting workplace inclusion and diversity,

·     
recommend and briefly describe a suitable HRD program to support the proposed inclusion and diversity strategy,

·     
provide a brief implementation plan for your recommendations, and

·     
outline how the effectiveness of your proposed HRD program will be monitored and evaluated.
