Expressions of Interest - DEIB Case Studies:

In 2024, the AHRI NSW Diversity and Inclusion Committee will be showcasing successful case studies which highlight meaningful change in DEIB practices or outcomes.

If you’re interested in sharing your success story, simply send us a brief summary outlining the background, challenges faced, interventions implemented, obstacles overcome, and the current outcomes or results achieved.

  • We encourage case studies that provide data-driven insights and delve into the ups and downs of navigating organisational change.

Don’t miss this opportunity to inspire others and contribute to the advancement of diversity, equity and inclusion in the HR profession.
