Because organisations are at different stages of the D&I journey, it’s no surprise they have different needs when they contact us. Sometimes they’re looking for support to review recruitment policies with a D&I lens, sometimes they want guidance to build a strategy, and sometimes they’re looking to build inclusive leadership capability through education programs. And sometimes it’s all of these, and more.
Whatever the need, we’re able to meet the diverse needs of clients thanks to the breadth of capabilities and experiences of the team at Diversity Partners.
Across Australia, we bring together accomplished D&I professionals and leadership experts as an external ‘centre of excellence’ for companies and public sector departments wanting to achieve greater diversity in the workplace and more inclusive work environments.
Among the team you’ll find process and policy experts, with years of corporate experience in analysing talent policies and workforce data to support greater diversity and reduce bias. Some, for example, have developed large-scale flexibility pilots and programs, and know the in’s and out’s of parental leave policies and other key retention strategies.
Some have extensive experience guiding employee resource groups and inclusion and diversity councils. Some are accessibility specialists with a deep interest in job and facility re-design to support greater inclusion.
Each engagement we undertake is assessed and customised appropriately to meet the specific needs of the client.
Some of us have a deep passion for research and writing – for client in-house publications and global industry publications – to share our learning and further the conversation on diversity and inclusion in Australia and Asia.
Some of us have substantial corporate experience in D&I; others have more diverse backgrounds including law, marketing, and business strategy. Many of us are collaborating with universities and industry groups to help transform workplaces - so they’re more inclusive, more diverse, more innovative, and higher performing.
Our facilitators also have extensive experience in helping organisations develop inclusive leadership capability through recognising and challenging unconscious biases that impact decision-making in general, and diversity progress in particular.
Each engagement we undertake is assessed and customised appropriately to meet the specific needs of the client. You get the benefit of multiple perspectives and multiple skill sets. That way you know you’re in highly qualified and trusted hands every time.
We’re always interested to explore how we can help organisations progress diversity and inclusion, and invite you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to organise a chat.
