McKinsey’s report, Diversity Matters, shows that diverse businesses are 35% more productive. Why is that?


Some businesses aspire to greater diversity, while others grapple with the challenges of diverse teams. Both scenarios have unique challenges. For example when teams comprise less of the same (ie they’re diverse), they may also experience less harmony!

So how are both diversity AND inclusion being managed to best effect within some of Australia’s most respected brands?

And how have leaders with obvious belief in corporate diversity dealt with being a lone voice, when peers or stakeholders dismiss the economic benefits?

At The Diversity Collective in Sydney on May 23, heads of business are gathering with Diversity champions, HR leaders and people managers who want more productive,  more inspired workplaces.

For example, you’ll hear from Troy Roderick, Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion at Telstra, Trudie Harriman, the Head of Human Resources, Commercial and Customer at Qantas; Peter Birtles, MD and CEO of Super Retail Group (and Male Champion of Change), Michael Clark, Executive Director at the Fair Work Ombudsman; Diana Hewitson, Head of Diversity and Inclusion Services at Ambition Group and many more.

We’ve upgraded our venue size to accomodate the level of interest so we still have some seats available.
