The Cultural Temperature of the Combat Brigades
The Australian Army, and wider Australian Defence Force (ADF), started their cultural reform journey in 2011 with the Broderick Review. Since this time, the Army and ADF have worked with the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) to transform our armed forces into a more diverse, inclusive and capable working environment. This article describes how the unique partnership between the Army and the AHRC was forged, and outlines the emerging themes across the combat brigades. These themes include acceptance of cultural reform initiatives, attitudes to, and experiences of diversity, the blurred line between banter and unacceptable behaviour and the inherent challenge of accessing flexible work arrangements.
