Diversity & Inclusion

Family Access Network embraces differences in gender identity and expression, age, ethnicity, race, cultural background, disability, religion, sex characteristics, and sexual orientation. We recognise the benefit diversity and inclusion plays in helping achieve our goals.

Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners in each of the communities where we work. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present.

Affirmation of the Darlington Statement

We affirm our commitment to the Darlington Statement, developed by intersex organisations and advocates in 2017, which articulates the human rights demands of people with intersex variations in Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand.

We actively acknowledge the distinctiveness of and diversity within the intersex population, and respect the intersex movement, without tokenism, or instrumentalising or co-opting intersex as a means to other ends.

We commit to adopting the human rights and legal reform, health and wellbeing, peer support, education, awareness and employment objectives of the Statement alongside other allies, and intersex organisations and advocates.
