Complex or severe mental illness can include conditions such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, major depression, eating disorders and PTSD, or a combination of these at the same time. At this event, we will learn how organisations can manage complex mental health issues in the workplace and help those experiencing them to live happy and productive working lives.
Gari Yala, which means ‘speak the truth’ in the Wiradjuri language, is based on a survey 1,033 Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander workers across Australia. The report reveals that Indigenous employees continue to experience significant workplace racism and exclusion and that racism is impacting wellbeing and job satisfaction and this session aims to provide a deep dive into the research findings.
Our Gari Yala 'speak the truth' report released last year drew on the insights and experiences of more than 1000 Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait workers. A key learning from the report was the importance of unearthing and acting on workplace truths – however uncomfortable they may be. At this event, we will uncover historical truths that underpin exclusion of Indigeous people and move forward and how to shape a better future.
As we approach Equal Pay Day, we will explore the latest on the gender pay gap and how leading practice organisations are making progress in closing the gap.
DCA CEO Lisa Annese will visit our Perth based members to present the latest updates on our latest D&I research. Dates are subject to change so be sure to check back to the coming DCA events closer to this proposed event time.
COVID-19 underlined the benefits of flexible working and brought hope to many people with disability that workplaces could be more accessible for them. But are Australian businesses learning these lessons and doing more to build accessible and inclusive workplaces for people with disability?
At DCA’s next Diversity Leadership Program event, we will look at the inclusion experiences of people with disability, and what more can be done to build more inclusive workplaces as well as attract, retain and progress employees with disability.
It happens to one in four pregnancies and is more likely to have an effect on a woman’s life than breast cancer and ovarian cancer. But miscarriage is rarely, if ever, discussed openly. At this event, we discover how employers can provide the best support at work for parents experiencing pregnancy loss.
This webinar aims to provide DCA members who participated in the Inclusion@Work DCA Member Index with guidance on how they can best use and understand their datasets.
Statistics show that women experience some mental health conditions at higher rates than men, such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, PTSD and self-harm. In contrast, men are more likely to suicide. At our next Mental Health Network, we take a look at the evidence and how workplaces can adopt gender lens in their approaches to mental health.
