‘Double jeopardy’ prevents culturally diverse women from top leadership roles - HUMAN RESOURCES DIRECTOR

Originally published: September 8, 2017

here is strong evidence that ‘double jeopardy’ (when gender and cultural background combine) is prohibiting women from top leadership opportunities, according to new evidence.

Indeed, only 2% of ASX directors are culturally diverse women, according to the Diversity Council Australia.

Now, for the first time in Australia, the DCA and The University of Sydney Business School have asked culturally diverse women about their experiences in the workplace, what is preventing them from progressing and what organisations can do to better harness their talents.
