Professionals of Colour

Developing culturally intelligent leaders and teams

Our Mission

Our mission is  to maximise the potential and contribution of its members by providing them with the platform to build meaningful connections, develop new skills and create a powerful network of allies. 

While many organizations have implemented diversity techniques in their hiring processes, the true value of cultural diversity within teams often remains untapped.

Many mid-career professionals of colour, who are also first- and second-generation migrants, often feel undervalued and disconnected from their teams. They encounter barriers such as bias, discrimination, and non-inclusion in their day-to-day lives, impacting both their careers and personal lives.

Educational Events

Professional Events featuring insightful panel discussions and a keynote address by an industry leader. Enroll your organization to Gain valuable knowledge, network with other industry professionals, and engage in thought-provoking conversations. Learn and implement best practises that are impactful.

Learning Modules

Book a Cultural Intelligence workshop for your organization and gain access to essential soft skills and in-demand capabilities. Choose from face-to-face sessions, facilitator-led online workshops, or our new self-paced video eLearning series, tailored for both individuals and organizations.

Reward and Recognization

Our Reward and Recognition program is designed to support the growth and development of professionals within organizations and communities. By acknowledging and celebrating achievements, we foster a motivating environment that encourages continuous improvement and professional excellence.


At APOC, we understand that climbing the corporate ladder or transitioning from a job to starting a business is no easy feat. We’ve been there ourselves, and we know what it takes!

We create a safe space for our members to learn from one another, share stories, and gather insights from established leaders across industries who have experienced and managed similar situations.

We don’t shy away from the tough conversations, raising awareness, and taking action on growth barriers such as bias, discrimination, and non-inclusion that professionals of colour face in Australia.

Corporate Organisations

In the evolving landscape of Australia, where the recognition of the advantages of investing in professionals of color is gaining momentum, we actively collaborate with organizations to offer external support. Our goal is to provide a unique perspective that fosters the development of inclusive and culturally intelligent leaders. By doing so, we aim to drive superior results and outcomes for your organization.

Discover how our tailored approach can cultivate a sense of belonging among your people. Contact us today to explore the transformative journey towards a more inclusive and culturally intelligent leadership landscape. Let’s work together to create an environment where everyone feels valued and empowered.
