DCA is proud to announce that a new flagship event has been added to its calendar this year - DCA’s Inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Oration. Brought to you in partnership with BAE Systems Australia, this year’s Oration will be delivered by Stan Grant, Indigenous Affairs Editor for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and special advisor to the Prime Minister on Indigenous constitutional recognition. Stan will outline his vision for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander diversity and inclusion in the workplace and how Australian business can embrace Indigenous talent and success.
In June DCA launched a new resource for Australian business called, Men Make a Difference: Engaging Men on Gender Equality. DCA Chair David Morrison AO & CEO Lisa Annese will be in Canberra in August to update members on this report and lead discussion on how men, as part of the problem of gender inequality, must be part of the solution.
At our next Gender Equality Network event, we will be exploring the findings of the recent Senate Inquiry into gender segregation in the workplace and its impact on women's economic equality.
At the next Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia network we will focus on unconscious biases held towards Indigenous people and how this can manifest at work.
In partnership with the University of Sydney, Google, Aurecon, Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Deloitte, DCA is delighted to release a new report, Cracking the Glass-Cultural Ceiling: Future Proofing Your Business in the 21st Century.
DCA's Diversity in the Legal Profession Network is designed for DCA member law firms or organisation with in-house council. The network offers legal professionals the opportunity to discuss the challenges specific to their field in a closed and trusted environment.
The idea that our thinking is shaped by our culture, background, experiences, and personalities is core to the concept of diverse thought and at our next Diversity Leadership Program event, we will take a critical look at diversity of thought.
DCA members are invited to the next meeting of the Building Cultural Capability Network. This network provides members with an opportunity to share insights and challenges on building greater organisational cultural capability.
Does a focus on identity help or hinder diversity and inclusion in the workplace? Moderated by Tony Jones, one of ABC's most respected journalists, our Annual Diversity Debate once again promises to be the diversity event of the year as two teams tackle this critical issue from a number of perspectives.
DCA works in partnership with members to generate ground breaking diversity research that enables Australian organisations to fully leverage the benefits of a diverse talent pool. Only DCA members can access the research reports in full. Summary information only is available to the general public. DCA research is ahead of the curve, drives business improvement, is practice focused, speaks to the Australian context and considers all diversity dimensions.
DCA’s Gender Equality Network, proudly sponsored by Clayton Utz, is open exclusively to DCA members and is designed to assist them in their preparations to meet reporting requirements on gender and to explore leading practice on gender diversity programs.
