The Art of Inclusion* is DCA's own podcast where we peer into the lives of fascinating people, whose stories shed light on the wider social issues facing Australia, and the world.

We flip the script on who we include, who we don’t, and how we can do better in everything from gender, race, mental health and disability, through to the inclusion of LGBTQI+ and Indigenous communities. 

In the second season, much like the first, we will smash taboos and peer into the lives of fascinating people, whose individual stories create the tapestry of diversity that make up Australia and its workplaces.

Check out this sneak peek at the topics covered in the upcoming season
