Report presenting the findings and recommendations from a four-year research project funded by the Australian Research Council investigating how leadership is practised in the intersection of cultural and gender differences in Australian organisations known for their best practice in diversity and inclusion management and programs. The project surfaced how diversity in organisations is made visible through internal and external means. Internally, diversity is managed through formal strategies and documents, informal activities and dedicated diversity and inclusion positions. Externally, diversity is demonstrated through the display of symbolic and material engagement with diversity and inclusion (e.g., public statements on same-sex marriage, customer-based multicultural programs and community guidelines) and the attainment of awards and certifications. The project also highlighted that despite changes to the workforce composition and diversity in business being promoted, celebrated and championed, many obstacles remain to expanding the diversity of the workforce and its leadership.
