The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) has committed to implementing all 17 recommendations of the Independent Cultural Review conducted by The Ethics Centre into the workplace culture of the AOC. The Review is a comprehensive 64 page document based on the experiences and perceptions of staff and stakeholders to frame and assess the AOC’s Ethical Framework.
The AOC will be actioning three recommendations immediately;
• A review of our governance model to ensure it is fit for purpose;
• Establishing a sub-committee of the Executive to actively monitor the delivery of the recommendations and on-going oversight of a culture plan;
• Appoint a dedicated People and Culture resource reporting to the CEO responsible for implementing the recommendations and in a broader and important role overseeing responsibilities to athletes and athlete centred programs such as Transition.
