Today on the Take on Board podcast, I speak to Lisa Annese about a recent report by the Diversity Council of Australia (DCA) called ‘Class at Work”.

Lisa is the Chief Executive Officer of the DCA. In this role she leads debate on diversity and inclusion in the public arena, and as a appears regularly on ABC TV’s The Drum and in wider Australian media.

Under her leadership, the DCA delivers innovative diversity practice resources for Australian businesses and supports in them improving their inclusion capability. She has led a broad array of ground-breaking, evidence-based research, including Australia’s first national index on workplace diversity and inclusion, seminal research on the economics of the gender pay-gap and original work on building Asian Leadership Capability, as well as research supporting individuals being ‘Out at Work’ and main-streaming flexible work.

In 2018, Lisa was named one of the AFR’s 100 Women of Influence. In 2019 she was elected to the board of Amnesty International Australia. Lisa is also executive producer of DCA’s podcast, The Art of Inclusion.

Lisa has had a long career in the diversity and inclusion space across the corporate, government and not-for-profit sector.
