Opinion | BY ANDREW GRIFFITH | December 6, 2021
Of particular interest in comparing the public service Employee Surveys is whether the general positive change from pre- to post-pandemic workplace satisfaction and other indicators is shared by the different visible minority and Indigenous groups, whether harassment and discrimination responses have changed, and the extent to which government efforts to address racism and improve inclusion are seen as credible and effective by these groups, writes Andrew Griffith.

Consciously or not, we all use narratives to drive our arguments and positions. The narratives we use reflect a mix of interests and values. Narratives have elements of identity politics (policies targeted to narrow constituencies) and virtue signalling (superficial support for positions) designed to target and attract individuals and groups, writes Andrew Griffith.
