DCA has developed a new Words At Work campaign for workplaces to show how inclusive language can improve workplace culture and drive productivity.
Diversity Council Australia partnered with Reconciliation Australia and Lend Lease on new research called, Closing the Work Gap in Corporate Australia. The research involved conducting interviews with Indigenous thought leaders, and engagement and employment practitioners.
Sponsored by National Australia Bank, this landmark research project revealed the motivations and aspirations of Aboriginal Australians to provide valuable information to help build sustainable employment strategies for the future.
Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples have a history of entrepreneurship and engaging with the mainstream economy but constitutional reform remains unfinished business, according to Stan Grant, delivering the inaugural DCA D&I Oration in Melbourne, sponsored by BAE Systems Australia.
In partnership with BAE Systems Australia, Diversity Council Australia is proud to present a special event – the inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Oration – to be delivered by Stan Grant.
Many leading practice Australian businesses continue to reap the rewards of diversity and inclusion (D&I) while others in the community want to ignore the benefits, according to Diversity Council Australia.

Attracting and retaining Indigenous Australians makes good business sense - they represent a young, enthusiastic and growing talent pool as well as market for your organisation’s products or services. In this section, you will find the following resources to help you manage this important aspect of diversity:

DCA’s Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia Network, sponsored by Lendlease and hosted by PwC Indigenous Consulting, will investigate the role unconscious bias plays in preventing Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people from progressing at work and what can be done to address it.
DCA is proud to announce that a new flagship event has been added to its calendar this year - DCA’s Inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Oration. Brought to you in partnership with BAE Systems Australia, this year’s Oration was delivered by Stan Grant, Indigenous Affairs Editor for the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and special advisor to the Prime Minister on Indigenous constitutional recognition. Stan spoke of a rapidly expanding Aboriginal middle class that is increasingly university educated, entrepreneurial and contributing extraordinary talent to Australian business and political life. However this overlooks fundamental issues that still need to be addressed.
