Strategic Advice & Consulting
DCA has been the advisor to Australian business on diversity issues for more than 25 years, driving business improvement through successful diversity programs.
We lead public debate by producing cutting edge research, thinking and practice on the full range of diversity issues covering all key diversity areas. We regularly prepare submissions and responses to government issues papers representing the expert views of DCA and the business perspective of DCA members on relevant issues such as the inquiry into pay equity, the proposed consolidation of Commonwealth anti-discriminations laws and the Australia in the Asian Century Issues Paper.
DCA members benefit from exclusive access to our Diversity Leadership Program and our innovative research agenda; as well as having access to unique networking opportunities with industry peers and diversity thought leaders. As we are a not for profit member based organisation, we provide access to these services and benefits to all DCA members as a part of annual membership fees.
