An Inconvenient Truth about Exclusion: When Recruitment Fails


We all like to think of ourselves as liberal, politically-correct, reflective beings. The truth is that a lot of what goes on in our mind is reactionary, unintentional, and out of our control. More often than not, we engage in exclusionary behaviour, to the detriment of those who are different from us.

In the ASX ranks, only 5% of chief execs have a non-European background, and NONE have indigenous background. Further to this, only 17% are female. These statistics are not a coincidence. They are a result of long-standing, biased and inefficient recruitment and promotion practices.

Are you interested to learn about the science of recruiting and supporting a diverse workforce.

This workshop will focus on recruitment process and strategy, language implications, debunking merit myths, and facilitating an inclusive culture.

Testgrid is passionate about helping clients on their diversity journey and doing our part in increasing workforce diversity and we will be joined by special guest speaker and ‘New Australian of the Year 2016’ Gary Lee. Gary Lee is an advocate and champion of cultural diversity, particularly issues pertaining to international students and migrants.
