People at the centre
Fairness and passion
We prioritise people and want everyone in Australia to have a fair opportunity to flourish. This is what gets us up in the morning and drives our purpose in the world. We care about the communities and people we work with and take the time to look after ourselves and each other.
Difference gives us strength
Respect and diversity
We are at our best when we work with others. SVA’ers respect difference and understand that everyone brings something unique to the table. We seek out diverse perspectives, challenge ideas, not intentions, and strive to be conscious of assumptions and prejudices.
Open and ready to learn
Humility and curiosity
We know we don’t have all the answers, so we listen more than we talk. At SVA, we are ready to learn from others and challenge our thinking to find innovative solutions. We’re prepared to take risks and do things differently, knowing that mistakes teach us just as much as successes.
Real change takes time
Tenacity and determination
Achieving real change is a marathon not a sprint – and we go after it even when the road gets bumpy. Our vision for the future is big, so we set ambitious goals and celebrate the small wins along the way. We apply deep rigour to our thinking and use evidence to deliver a high standard of work.
