Building on the inaugural 2013 report, the 2014 report provides an analysis of the disclosures on diversity made by a selection of ASX listed entities with financial years ended between 31 December 2012 and 30 December 2013. It focuses on an analysis of the second full year of reporting and provides for comparisons to be made and trends drawn between the first and second full years of reporting.

- There have been mixed results in relation to the development of measurable objectives among the sample groups analysed.
