Inclusion@Work Index 2019-2020

DCA is currently seeking a second sponsor for its Inclusion@Work Index 2019-2020 project. The sponsor would be joining forces with Suncorp and DCA to develop and launch the second iteration of DCA’s Inclusion@Work Index, which will investigate how inclusive the Australian workplace is for a diversity of employees and track Australia’s progress in creating inclusion at work.

DCA and sponsors will be building on the landmark Inclusion@Work Index 2017-2018, which encouraged Australian organisations to achieve inclusion in their workplaces by providing for the first time national inclusion benchmarks in regards to the Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander background, age, cultural background, caring status, disability status, gender, religion, and sexual orientation and gender identity of workers.

For this 2019-2020 second iteration of the project DCA is seeking a co-sponsor, to enable us to continue supporting Australian organisation’s create more diverse and inclusive workplaces by mapping and tracking inclusion in Australia’s workforce over time.
