What our members say

The online events have been so valuable and the resources on the member portal are fabulous.

The membership has supported me with building my confidence as a D&I professional, expanding my knowledge on areas I have little experience and helps me to feel confident I am delivering the most current information from a trusted source.

Nothing beats DCA, it is the best asset I have to do my job as well as I do.

I cannot express in words the value I have personally benefited from DCA - suffice to say it has been INCREDIBLY SIGNFICANT.

Knowing there is a community of DEI professionals in Australia that we can reach out to - also the ongoing support from your team has been phenomenal. Thank you again!
