Cultural diversity and leadership forum

The Leadership Council hosted eighty leaders in Sydney to discuss getting cultural diversity right.

Leaders from Australian business, government, media and higher education joined a Cultural Diversity and Leadership Forum on 7 June.

The forum tackled issues including data collection on cultural diversity, leadership targets, recruitment, mentoring and professional development.
