A new free online Workplace Cultural Diversity Tool is now available to help businesses enhance productivity, innovation and growth through a culturally diverse workforce.
Developed in partnership between the Australian Human Rights Commission, Diversity Council Australia and VicHealth, the tool will help businesses to maximise the benefits of cultural diversity.
Businesses can undertake a self-assessment so that they can measure themselves against best practice standards in workplace cultural diversity.
Managing diversity is about Australian employers being leaders in a global economy,” Dr Soutphommasane said.
