It’s messages like this in our inbox this morning that keeps the DP team energised to deliver rigorous research and targeted diversity and inclusion strategies.

Over the past decade, we’ve provided research and strategy guidance to progress diversity and inclusion for many medium to large organisations and government agencies.

Here's some examples of clients that have engaged us to undertake diversity and inclusion research and detailed strategy development, by sector:

  • Financial services: NAB, Westpac, Commonwealth Bank, Suncorp, Bank of Queensland, Bendigo and Adelaide Bank, QSuper, Telstra Super, ME Bank.

Our research methodology draws on global diversity and inclusion benchmarks, Australian gender equality reporting frameworks, and our team's practical experience working in diversity leadership roles for, and with, large Australian firms over many years. 

Each company we work with has particular diversity challenges and opportunities. And many different commercial and performance objectives.

That's why we work hard to apply the most effective solutions that add value to employees, customers and other shareholders. The outcome for our clients is a carefully crafted strategy that sets a clear direction for achieving success on their diversity and inclusion objectives.

And that's why receiving feedback about the impact of our recommendations is always uplifting.
