About The Star
The Star Entertainment Group’s vision is to become Australia’s leading integrated resort company. We are an ASX-listed company that owns and operates The Star Sydney, The Star Gold Coast and Treasury Brisbane. Alongside our partners, we are also developing the transformative $3.6 billion Queen Wharf Brisbane project.
Diversity & Inclusion
At The Star, our greatest strengths are the diversity of our people. Our success as we move towards becoming ‘Australia’s leading integrated resort company’ is underpinned by our talented teams and the unique perspectives and experiences they bring, every day.
We are committed to ensuring our culture remains welcoming, inclusive, and safe. We aim to provide our team members with an environment that is welcoming and respectful where they feel valued and able to be their best self and to make a difference within our communities, and to the guests we serve.
In March 2018, The Star launched The Star Academy, a one-stop career development platform across each of its properties.
Our Engagement with Diversity and Inclusion Starts at the Top
Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is embedded in all we do. Starting with our most senior leaders whose role is to champion our four areas of focus, we engage all team members in dedicated learning programs to help support their understanding of diversity, equity and inclusion and to remove instances of unconscious bias.
We are proud to be one of the most diverse and inclusive workplaces in Australia and encourage all our team members to participate in our core diversity and inclusion focus areas.
The Star hires team members to be themselves and ensures a welcoming workplace that develops people from a range of diverse backgrounds – regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation or cultural background.
Some of our diversity and inclusion targets are:
- 45% female representation in leaderships roles by 2023
- 20% Asian representation in leadership roles by 2023
- 5% year-on-year increase in Australian Workplace Equality Index Score
The Star is recognised as a ‘Gold Employer’ by the Australian Workplace Equality Index for its LGBTQI+ inclusion, and an ‘Employer of Choice’ by the Workplace Gender Equality Agency.
The Star is always looking for passionate people to join the team and offers a variety of opportunities in hospitality, dining, nightlife, entertainment and gaming.
The Star also has formal partnerships with several education institutions to provide Industry Placements and Internships and has developed The Star Culinary Institute, an apprenticeship program to train aspiring chefs.
The Star supports four areas of focus and Employee Network Groups: Proud @ The Star; Unity @ The Star; Balance @ The Star and Reconciliation@TheStar.
These focus areas aim to provide an overarching roadmap for the enhancement of diversity and inclusion initiatives across The Star to strengthen our culture of safety, equity and conscious inclusion.
