DCA members explain how membership adds value to their diversity programs:

“As Australia's peak adviser to business on diversity issues, DCA provides us with the directions, advice and support we really value. Our membership keeps us up-to-date on the latest issues and trends in diversity management, and gives us access to DCA's wide experience. It's why we signed up as a foundation member many years ago and why we continue our partnership today.”
Robert Orth, Director, Human Resources for IBM Australia/New Zealand.

“We rely on the quality diversity research and advice provided by DCA to assist in development of our diversity strategy within Allens. DCA has provided assistance to help us create the change in culture required within our firm, to deliver diversity outcomes.”
