ITS is committed to developing and promoting a positive work environment that encourages:

  • a high performance culture
  • employee fulfillment at work
  • teams working toward shared goals
  • rewards for behaviours recognising UQ values.

The aim is to ensure ITS staff are equipped with the skills to actively and positively acknowledge and promote the core values of the University.

Cultural Awareness Team
