At each monthly meeting the Board sets time aside to discuss a strategic issue, and this month's nominated topic was diversity. Judging by the discussion threads on CFA Connect
, diversity is a topic brigades are exploring too - everything from how to create an inclusive environment to strategies for maximising the pool of potential members.
These discussion threads show that diversity is not just about women, as it was perhaps viewed 20 years ago. Diversity is about the young, the not-so-young; people living with disability and people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
