The CEDA NSW Women in Leadership: diversity and inclusion series returns in 2018 to examine building a diverse workforce and strategies to increase inclusivity.

Speakers

Event overview

The world and our workplace today have become highly diverse.

Building a diverse workforce often means rethinking recruitment and workplace practices, and introducing deliberate strategies to increase inclusivity.

While more and more employers are taking steps towards employing and supporting a more diverse workforce – statistics reveal that many Australian organisations are struggling to manage diversity effectively. In 2016, just 10 per cent of Chief Executives of ASX companies were from a non-European background and similar statistics are reflected in leadership across government and academia sectors.
 
The CEDA NSW Women in Leadership: diversity and inclusion series returns to examine:

  • Composition of leadership and Australia’s current workforce demographics – do they reflect our diverse society with regard to race, gender, sexuality, and disability?
  • The benefits of greater workplace diversity such as increased adaptability, effective communication, broader service range and a variety of viewpoints; and
  • Best-practice assessment, development, and implementation of strategies to drive diversity and inclusion in your organisation.
