This ground-breaking new report re-examines the state of play for culturally and racially marginalised (CARM) women in leadership, focusing on how the intersections of two key marginalising characteristics - race and gender - are still operating in workplaces to lock CARM women out of leadership.

Despite being ambitious, capable, and resilient, and well positioned to contribute to their own and their organisation’s success, CARM women continue to be scarce across senior leadership positions in Australia and internationally.

DCA therefore conducted this research to understand why this was the case, what were the barriers locking this cohort out of leadership, and what workplaces should do to address this issue. Importantly, the project was led, and the research was conducted, by CARM women.
