Chapter 8 considers the internal dynamics of diversity seeking organisations and the implications for their engagement in skilled immigration policy processes. Undertaking an audit of all major organisations in the field in Australia and Canada, this chapter demonstrates the importance of funding diversity, coalition building and a flat organisational structure for diversity-seeking group strength, itself a necessary precursor to venue shopping. The chapter concludes by considering the practical policy and theoretical implications of the gender analysis presented in the book.
