Webinar on Diversity fatigue: What it is and how D&I practitioners can counter it

This Diversity Leadership Program event explores the phenomenon of diversity fatigue and how D&I practitioners can counter it.

For well over thirty years, initiatives designed to improve diversity and inclusion (D&I) have been a priority for organisations. Most D&I practitioners know that creating diverse and inclusive workplaces takes time and effort.

But how do you respond to people who are frustrated that change is slow, or who think that D&I has already been ‘fixed’ or is no longer a priority, especially when compared with other, more pressing, business issues?

This Diversity Leadership Program event in partnership with HSBC Australia explores the phenomenon of diversity fatigue and how D&I practitioners can counter it. Insights will include:

  • Why D&I still matters and the benefits it brings to everyone
  • What the evidence says about creating successful change
  • How to motivate and engage a diversity of stakeholders to get on board
  • How to ensure D&I isn’t lost amongst many other competing priorities.

Our guest panel, moderated by Mariam Veiszadeh, DCA's Members and Advisory Director, includes::

  1. Kate Lee, Executive Manager of Engagement, Workplace Gender Equality Agency
  2. Susan Metcalf, CEO of Chief Executive Women
  3. Chris Lamb, former DCA Board Member and Senior HR Professional
  4. Kylie McGavin, Head of Talent, HSBC Australia and
  5. Lisa Annese, CEO Diversity Council Australia
