Australian of the Year to speak at Diversity in Action Summit


We know intuitively that diversity matters.  It’s also increasingly clear that it makes sense in purely business terms. The latest research shows companies that rate highly in gender and ethnic diversity are more likely to have financial returns above their industry average.

Lieutenant General (Retd) David Morrison, 2016 Australian of the Year and Chair of the Diversity Council Australia, will be offering business-focused, practical strategies to increase diversity at IPENZ’s Diversity in Action Summit on 19 August at Te Papa, Wellington.

David says “Organisations that are able to demonstrate diversity – and not just in the makeup of their workforce, but also having more inclusive work practices – will tangibly move ahead of their competitors.”
