- The idea for this research came from earlier DIMA-funded research undertaken in 1998 (Diversity and Dollars, CEDA Information Paper No. 58). That research found that few Australian businesses had a diversity management policy, particularly embracing issues of race and ethnicity. Where managers were interested in such a policy, they were hampered by a lack of detailed Australian case study materials. They emphasised that any material produced should demonstrate the bottom line benefits of being proactive in this area. The Workplace Studies Centre, Victoria University subsequently undertook two case studies in major Australian companies which had diversity management policies. The research was funded by DIMA, Victoria University, the Australian Multicultural Foundation, Mobil Oil and a major financial services provider (FSP).
