Putting Cultural Diversity on the Agenda

The Asian-Australian Leadership Summit (AALS) is aimed at putting cultural diversity firmly on the agenda. The two day national summit looked at why Australia has relatively few Asian-Australians in senior leadership positions, and what needs to happen to break through the so-called “bamboo ceiling.” The AALS explored the important role our Asian-Australian diaspora can play in Australia’s future, including our engagement with Asia.
