2017 Annual Diversity Debate sponsor

DCA’s Annual Diversity Debate is always one of the hottest tickets in town each year.  With over 400 in attendance, the 2016 Debate was sold out just two weeks after bookings opened. Moderated by Tony Jones, one of the ABC's most respected journalists and host of ABC TV’s Q&A, the Debate features six high profile panellists debating a hot diversity topic during an evening of networking over canapés followed by a cabaret style dinner. 

Debate sponsorship opportunities include major sponsor (1 only), support sponsor (2 only) and multiple associate sponsor opportunities. In addition to significant branding and recognition in the D&I space, Debate sponsors are exposed to an audience of 450+ at the event and showcased to the wider community. The event consistently draws a high profile panel and significant media interest via DCA’s media and communications campaign.

Major Partners receive premium branding and profile on all DCA activities and have numerous options to collaborate with DCA including hosting Diversity Leadership Program events and/or contributing to our publications.

Event sponsor

DCA facilitates several events and networks focussing on the D&I issues facing certain industry sectors and various diversity dimensions. Each event meets at least twice a year where guest speakers provide informative presentations and lead discussion on topics of particular interest. 

Event sponsors have the opportunity to secure naming rights of the network, and have a strong branded presence on all event e-invitations and webpages. Sponsors provide welcome addresses at each meeting and have the option to join panel discussions or present case studies. 

Blog sponsor

DCA's blog facilitates thought-provoking, two-way conversations to raise awareness and understanding of diversity as a critical business issue.  Sponsors of the blog have the opportunity to lead the discussion on D&I in business and wider community and gain recognition as thought leaders through branding on the blog itself, as well as social media postings.
