When you’re focused on driving broader cultural change to support diversity and inclusion progress, what’s often needed is a mix of solutions tailored to your workplace environment. It’s that diversity of client assignments that keeps our team energised. Assignments in any one-month range from briefing board members on diversity, detailed audits of talent management processes to reduce unconscious bias, strategy preparation, diversity council facilitation, providing advice on metrics, and leadership development and coaching programs.
We can run a single program, or we can work with you to embed diversity and inclusion principles right across your business.
Here’s a snapshot of our current clients and work:
With Bank of Queensland, we’ve completed a detailed diagnostic to identify diversity-related challenges and opportunities, supported the development of a three-year strategy and action plans, and trained the executive and top 100 leaders around Australia to promote diversity and reduce unconscious bias.
With Lander and Rogers, we’ve started with the law firm’s 2020 strategy to weave diversity and inclusion principles across the business. We’ve provided education on unconscious bias to all partners and Specials Counsel, having worked closely with the board to identify the importance of diversity and inclusion.
With REA Group, a digital media group specialising in property, we’ve provided our inclusive leadership ‘awareness’ program for hundreds of leaders, followed by our ‘building skills’ program using scenarios generated by the groups in each session to embed the learning.
With Fletcher Building Group, we’ve trained each of the key business unit leadership teams in Australia and New Zealand to recognise unconscious bias, supported the Group’s diversity strategy development, and recently provided webinars to their team of internal facilitators to extend learning to front-line managers across several regions.
With PwC NZ, we’ve travelled to a range of locations in New Zealand to provide conversation and learning opportunities for partners to promote diversity and inclusion in their consulting business.

“Diversity Partners has helped us make a meaningful step-change in how we understand and talk about diversity and inclusion within the firm. The Unconscious Bias and Inclusive Leadership sessions facilitated by Duncan Smith have led to some powerful conversations and real insights for many of our people around their own leadership behaviour and its impact. The sessions have also provided us with some practical tools to support us (individually and collectively) build a more inclusive culture.”
