Speakers Bureau

DCA’s senior leadership team, board members and advisors are highly regarded speakers and panellists both within Australia and internationally on a broad range of diversity and inclusion issues.

DCA speakers regularly speak at both member events and also public forums and engagements, providing key insights and expert opinions on all key diversity areas.

The following DCA staff are available to speak at events by request:

  • Lisa Annese
  • Dr Jane O’Leary

  • Fiona Austin-Weber

The DCA Speakers Bureau is a fee-for-service resource, with discounted rates for DCA members. Please contact us at admin@dca.org.au if you would like to engage a DCA Speaker.

The information shared with us will prompt many a conversation amongst us, over the months to come."
