It’s been over 100 years since the first IWD and we’ve come a long way in creating gender equality – but we still have a long way to go. In 2020, gender inequalities continue to limit the ability of both men and women to be respected and to contribute at work and at home.
In this section, you will find resources to help you attract, engage, and retain workers of all ages. Much of the research in Australia and internationally on the impact of age in the workforce focuses on ‘older’ workers. However, while older individuals (however ‘older’ is defined) do experience particular workplace issues as a result of ageing, ‘age’ must be considered across the life course.
How inclusive are Australian workplaces for a diversity of employees, and how has this changed over time? What impact does inclusion have on performance and wellbeing? The 2019-2020 Inclusion@Work Index surveyed a nationally representative sample of 3,000 Australian workers to find out.
For well over thirty years, initiatives designed to improve diversity and inclusion (D&I) have been a priority for organisations – but are the plethora of D&I initiatives actually creating the organisational change they aspire to?
The DCA-Suncorp Inclusion@Work Index 2017-2018 is a landmark study, providing the first-ever national benchmarks for Australian workplaces in regards to the age, cultural background, disability status, gender, Indigenous background, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity of workers.
DCA has developed a new Words At Work campaign for workplaces to show how inclusive language can improve workplace culture and drive productivity.
DCA research has found that older women (defined as 45 years plus) represent a sizeable and growing segment of the labour force but Australian organisations are failing to fully harness their skills and talents.
This research project reveals baby boomers are challenging traditional notions of retirement.
Mature-age workers comprise 40% of Australia's workforce. They're likely your most experienced and highest-paid employees, but a failure to fully engage this valuable resource will hurt your bottom line.
This report, released by Per Capita (2017), challenges existing ideas about older workers and ageing, puts forth recommendations about how to consider age and advocate for ‘age’ across the workforce.
Diversity Council Australia is excited to be launching Australia’s first online platform collaborating with a variety of service providers in the diversity and inclusion (D&I) space.
Ground-breaking research reveals support for inclusion in workplaces is up among one of the most resistant groups
DCA's 2019-2020 Inclusion@Work Index shows that support for diversity and inclusion (D&I) is up among men – traditionally the group least likely to strongly support, and one of the groups most likely to oppose such initiatives.
The 2019 Diversity Council Australia and MLC Life Insurance Debate will ask: Is backlash good for diversity and inclusion?
DCA strongly supports individuals being protected from discrimination and harassment because of their religious belief and we proactively support our members in creating workplaces where religious belief is afforded the same dignity and respect as other attributes of a person’s identity.
