The 2011 census revealed that almost a quarter (24.6%) of Australia’s population was born overseas and 43.1% of people have at least one overseas-born parent.Asian Australians make up almost 10 per cent of the Australian population. In that context why is then that organisations and Government agencies are not reflecting such diversity in their leadership teams? There are growing calls for increasing women in leadership roles across all sectors with quotas or target to achieve the numbers for women in leadership positions. DAWN would like to see the debate to also include cultural diverse leadership.
