Diversity Arts Australia (DARTS) undertook research
in February 2018 to investigate levels of representation
of culturally and/or linguistically diverse (CALD)
Australians in leadership positions within the
country’s major arts, screen and cultural organisations.
The data collected and analysed in this report is
current as at 2 April 2018.
One of the key aims of this research is to establish
baseline data about the level of CALD representation
in the leadership positions of Australia’s major cultural
organisations. This decision to focus on leadership
was in recognition of the significant role that cultural
sector leaders play in terms of decision making,
influencing priorities, setting agendas, gatekeeping
and shaping organisational culture.
