Driving diversity in the IT community at the RBA

As a Policy and Assurance Manager in the Information Technology Department at the Reserve Bank of Australia, Miriam Lane is an active supporter of women and equality in the workplace.

“I have a long-standing interest in diversity within the IT community and was a founding committee member for Women in Security and Risk, an external networking group for women working in this arena,” she says.

Empowering women in IT

Promoting diversity via the Women in Technology (WIT) community, Miriam understands the importance of recognising, empowering and promoting women in this area. This community encourages this via training, informal networking opportunities and events with inspirational speakers.

“I also participate in external events, for example the Australian Information Security Association Conference. With the RBA’s support, I participated in a panel discussion that reviewed ideas for solving the diversity crisis in cybersecurity,” Miriam explains.

Great work-life balance

In a company that is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace - The Reserve Bank of Australia also places a high level of importance on work-life balance and makes sure this is a possibility through its flexible working policies.

“Working at the RBA you can mix with smart people who respect the opinions of individuals and understand the importance of work/life balance. For me, being able to purchase leave is a wonderful option because it means I can take leave when I need it to spend time with my family.”

Employees across the Bank’s operations are rewarded with access to flexible work arrangements, as well as health and well-being programs - as the RBA understands the contribution that staff wellbeing makes to performance.
