Culturally Diverse Women

CDW (Culturally Diverse Women) is a joint venture between MINDTRIBES and Advancing Women in Business & Sport.

Co-Founders of CDW are Vick & Div Pillay and Michelle Redfern. CDW was formed in March 2017 to address the significant under-representation of culturally diverse women in senior leadership roles in Australia.

On the 5th of October, 2017 Christine Nixon former Victorian Police Commissioner launched CDW at Melbourne’s Immigration Museum with 90 CALD women who were nominated into the group.  These women will support each other to navigate the organisational barriers faced due to their gender and culture.

In February 2018, CDW shared key trends and recommendations to both big business and government in an effort to push for inclusion. 

The CDWomen’s flagship program is their Masterclass series of four sessions attended by a curated cohort of 40-50 selected culturally diverse women.  So far the program has supported over 180 women from 25 cultural heritages to navigate their personal, leader and organisational barriers as a result of the gender & culture bias experienced.
