This year’s there is a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
We have an amazing guest speaker, Dai Le who lives and breathes diversity and inclusion. Her mission is to help build an inclusive society where institutions and organizations genuinely reflect the diverse community we live in.
Born in Saigon, Vietnam, Dai spent many years in refugee camps in South East Asia before being accepted for resettlement in Australia. Her childhood experiences and growing up with a dual identity – being a Vietnamese in an Australian and western cultural surroundings, helped to shape her perception of life.
It has also made her a passionate advocate for refugees and migrants’ communities, diversity and inclusion.
Dai consults, drives brand marketing through the use of social media and speaking engagements, on the topic of inclusive leadership, in particular the lack of it, across mainstream society.
A former award-winning journalist, film-maker and broadcaster with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Dai was named one of AFR-Westpac’s Top 100 Influential Women in Australia in 2014.
With over 20 years of change making experience, Dai is a strong believer in the use of storytelling to inspire, educate and inform.
Her organisation DAWN is a boutique agency that is leading the “cultural diversity in leadership” conversation. The diverse team at DAWN provide organisations and individuals with tools, content, and pathways to add value to their D & I journey.
Dai is also a breast cancer survivor.
