We have been working with a government organisation recently that is looking towards developing a new multicultural policy.
In terms of multicultural diversity, Australia is most certainly among the more diverse. However, it is notable that assumptions are made that this diversity is translated into the workplace.
Often organisations are diverse to a certain point in the lower levels but this doesn’t always translate to the senior levels.
It is a reminder that effort and intention are very much a necessary part of the D&I journey, particularly for organisations that seek to represent the community they serve.
