Cassie with her son

Our people are at the heart of our success and ensuring a diverse and inclusive workforce is key to helping us deliver on our commitment of redefining service excellence for our clients.

As we recognise Transgender Awareness Week this week and show our support for all our wonderfully passionate people, we'd like to share Cassie's story.

"My name is Cassie Copland, and I am a part of the Ventia Operations Centre team. I spent seven years serving in the Australian Army before being medically discharged in Feb 2021.

I joined Ventia as a part of the Defence team in April of 2022 and I am a proud trans woman.

During my time with Ventia I have found an amazing culture that exists within the company, on a personal and professional level.


Decorations on Cassie

Cassie has been met with love, kindness and support from her immediate team and superiors since starting with Ventia.


I began my transition before joining Ventia, however, I have been met with nothing but love, kindness and support from my immediate team and superiors.

Being able to live and work authentically as myself within such a positive team environment, I cannot understate the profound impact this has had on my mental health and improved my drive and overall capability."
