What are the experiences of Australian workers when it comes to inclusion? Find out when we launch the second Inclusion at Work Index which maps and tracks inclusion in Australian workplaces.

The mark of an inclusive workplace is when a diversity of people (e.g. from different ages, cultural backgrounds, genders) feel respected and valued for who they are. They feel connected to their co-workers and a part of their team and have opportunities to progress their career and contribute their talents to the organisation.

But what are the experiences of Australian workers when it comes to inclusion? DCA is releasing its second Inclusion@Work Index which maps and tracks inclusion in Australian workplaces.

At this launch event, Suncorp's Chief People Experience Officer, Amanda Revis will open proceedings by talking about the importance of inclusion.

DCA’s Research Director, Dr Jane O’Leary will then present findings from this year’s survey, which provides insights into:

  • Notable trends in inclusion since the first Index was released
  • How particular demographic groups are faring when it comes to inclusion
  • Where and how DCA members have outperformed the national Index.

Following Jane’s presentation, DCA’s CEO, Lisa Annese will invite our guest speakers to participate in a panel discussion exploring the findings and what practical actions organisations can take to build more inclusive workplaces:

  • Catherina Behan, Diversity & Inclusion Manager, People Experience, Suncorp
  • Casey Conway, Manager, Diversity & Inclusion, NRL
  • Dr Mark Bagshaw, Managing Director, Innov8Group
