Statistics show Australians from non-European backgrounds are significantly under-represented in leadership positions.  Now, a program in Sydney's west is hoping to change that by giving migrants and refugees the confidence to rise to the top in business. Lydia Feng reports.

It is a common experience many new arrivals face.

 

Thomas Orungo decided to participate in a program called Catalysr to start his own business.

 

The four-month program gives 20 budding entrepreneurs professional help in creating their own business plans and becoming leaders in their own fields.
