Diversity in SCB Oceania

Picture1Just prior to the SCBO 2016 Brisbane conference, we released a Draft Diversity Statement and invited members to provide feedback on how SCB Oceania can uphold its commitment to diversity. During the conference we asked attendees to tweet using the #SCBODiversity hashtag and discussed the draft statement during a group session. Finally, we asked for feedback in the post-conference survey, so in total we received some fantastic input.

Draft Diversity Statement

We seek your input into how SCB Oceania can uphold its commitment to diversity:

  • How do you define diversity in SCB Oceania?
  • What could SCB Oceania do to support a diverse, inclusive, and equitable membership and leadership?
  • What are some of your reasons for wanting to see diversity, inclusion, and equity in SCB Oceania?
