Recently released data from some of Australia’s most prestigious cultural institutions has revealed that many of their workforces are lacking in what the organisations represent; namely, workers from culturally diverse backgrounds.

    Did it occur to anyone that Aboriginal & Torres Straight Islanders didn't apply for roles in these organisations? Just because an organisation has a target or a good intention doesn't mean people of any particular demographic will apply. I struggle with any organisation having diversity 'targets'. Surely the target when recruiting to fill a position is to get the right person for the job - a person with the appropriate qualifications, skills & abilities to perform the role, who is a good cultural fit for the environment, so they are set up to be successful in the role. Ethnicity, religion, gender etc have nothing to do with it.
