Annual Diversity Debate sponsor

DCA's Annual Diversity Debate is one of the hottest tickets in town and the 10th Anniversary celebration of Debate will be no exception. Due to the impact of COVID-19 this event has been postponed until Tuesday 15 November 2022 and will be staged in Sydney.

This favourite DCA event boasts an entertaining evening of networking followed by a two course dinner and very entertaining debate asking: Is it time to move on from a focus on Gender Diversity? 

The debate teams will feature 6 high profile speakers and our master of ceremonies, journalist and TV presenter Tony Jones will return for one last year to help us mark the 10th Anniversary of DCA's Great Debate! 

The 2019 Debate was a great success and received rave reviews. See photos, videos & more.

What previous sponsors have said about the Debate:

"On behalf of the NAB we would like to thank you for such an incredible night last night for the debate. The quality of the event, the engaging conversations and the passion that was in the room to support a more inclusive society was fabulous. Working with the DCA has been a pleasure and we thank you for allowing us to be involved. All the best - and thank you for such a great event!" (Major Sponsor 2018)

"It certainly was a terrific evening and a very thought provoking topic for debate. I was pretty sure at the get go of which side of the argument I was in favour but with each speaker I vacillated from one side of the argument to the other. Both teams did a superb job and great choice of topic on the part of you and your team. MLC Life Insurance was delighted to have the opportunity to sponsor the event and to partner with the DCA." Susan Karson, Chief People Officer, MLC Life Insurance (Major Sponsor 2019)
