Div Pillay is a South African Indian, now Australian, who thrived despite and because of, the segregation based on race during apartheid. She got active and entrepreneurial in the community, whilst working in corporate HR driving affirmative action. Div describes herself as ‘inclusionist’, driving the inclusion agenda in Australia in a unique way. She believes inclusion is a capability that can be taught and it is a behavior choice – people can consciously choose to be inclusive.
She is the CEO of D&I firm MindTribes and social enterprise Culturally Diverse Women and Workforces (as Co-Founder), the National Chair for D&I committee of the American Chamber of Commerce and is on the Board of STREAT focussing on youth homelessness
The kind of change Div is driving for is tangible and measurable. Listen to this podcast so you can better understand the bottom-line value of D&I for businesses, and how you can adapt your career to embrace D&I.
