Diversity and Inclusion conference

Diversity & Inclusion Conference 2022
Wednesday 27 April 2022, 8:30am to 5:00pm AEST

On 27 April we had our 10th annual D&I Conference showcasing leading practices in diversity and inclusion within Australia. We celebrated and articulated progress, discussed and deciphered action to move us along the path to greater inclusion.

Read about Kate Neilson and Sophie Deutsch key takeaways from this year’s event in their HRM article ‘Five ways to move the needle on diversity and inclusion in your organisation‘.



This year, the session streams were informed by the AHRI Diversity and Inclusion Maturity Model. Our speakers and panels will share experiences and insight in Level 2 – the way we change mindsets and behaviours, and in Level 3 – the way we do business. Follow one stream or mix and match based on your interests.

Who should attend?

This conference is for leaders and specialists who want to learn new ideas about how to grow or embed a practice of diversity and inclusion in their roles and workplaces. The conference is designed to resonate with people who work in leadership, HR, workforce design and recruitment, organisational development, and those who specialise, consult or have responsibilities related to diversity and inclusion practice as part of their role. However, we welcome anyone who wants to be informed and inspired by the latest PROGRESS + ACTION for diversity and inclusion.

Why attend?

  • Experience a carefully crafted program that mixes inspiring lived experiences with professional progress, frameworks for action and opportunities to learn from one another.
  • Your host, AHRI, is the national association representing human resource and people management professionals, which means we draw our content and priority topics from our vast network and we have a deep understanding of the needs within the industry.
  • The event is offered both in-person and online at the same time. That means virtual delegates can enjoy the keynote and session streams live, benefit from the in-person engagement and join conversations in real time.
