Diversity Council Australia is delighted that our CEO, Lisa Annese, has today been named one of The Australian Financial Review's 100 Women of Influence for 2018. 

David Morrison, DCA's Chair, congratulated Lisa on the acknowledgment.

"On behalf of the Board, and everyone at DCA, congratulations to Lisa. This is wonderful public recognition of the extraordinary work she does to champion the causes of diversity and inclusion.

"I have spoken with her this morning to congratulate her and to express our collective pride in her commitment and achievements.

"It is so well deserved and continues to show why the DCA speaks with resonance and acts with such integrity," said David.

The Australian Financial Review 100 Women of Influence Awards, presented by Qantas, encompasses ten categories, with the aim of identifying a diverse group of women championing change in business and society. The awards  uncover and promote Australian women who have dedicated their time and energy to help and encourage other women in their industry, and who are fighting for change every day. 

This year’s list was chosen from a record 850 entries, a large increase on the 370 received in 2016, the last time the awards were held.




Wonderful recognition for the work Lisa has done over many years!
