I work for the government and they are taking big steps to have a diverse workplace. I'm an indigenous woman and I firmly believe this was a deciding factor in getting my job.

Absolutely. I had a recruitment consultant tell me 6 months ago that companies would see me as a liability because I had children.

Do you feel discrimination is still rife?
When I worked onsite one of the other contractors did not employ females. At all. They had about 2,000 staff and not one female. One of my colleagues applied for a job there (as she was being demobilised from our company), had an interview, all went well and was told she would get a contract sent out. Instead she got an email saying there had been a mistake, they do not hire females and so she would not be getting a contract. She was so upset and did not have the confidence to stand up for herself. The following week at work we got an email saying the site was celebrating women in the workforce, blab blah blah - I sent that email and attached the rejection email my colleague got and (with her permission) sent it to the company's corporate HR manager offsite who didn't give a cr@p. I was disgusted. This was 5 years ago and I'm still angry.
