Let’s have the Conversation

The Equal Employment Opportunity Network (EEON) in partnership with the Institute for Courageous Conversations About Race at Unitec Institute of Technology (Auckland New Zealand) and the Australian Intercultural Society warmly invite you to attend the key note ‘Courageous Conversations about Race: Let’s have the Conversation’, by internationally recognised race relations expert and author of Courageous Conversations About Race, Glenn E Singleton, on Friday 9 December 2016 in Melbourne.
Australia is one of the world’s most culturally diverse nations, with 44 per cent of Australians either born overseas or having at least one parent who was born overseas. Nearly one million people have settled in Australia since 2010 and we speak over 260 languages.
Whilst much has been done to embrace our rich cultural and linguistic diversity, the race and cultural diversity ‘gap’ continues to persist in Australian society. Key issues in relation to under-representation, under-utilisation and isolation are prevalent with stories of racism in every aspect of daily life becoming more frequent. Despite a number of successful initiatives, there continues to be complacency and relatively low levels of commitment and investment in cultural competency activities across Australian workplaces.
How will this key note help you?
The Institute for Courageous Conversations About Race at Unitec (iCCAR) uses an internationally-embraced approach for addressing structural racial inequities in a direct, compassionate and sustainable manner. The CCAR Protocol and the Systemic Racial Equity Transformation Framework provides leaders, managers and employees with navigational tools that they can apply at work leading to significant short-term impact and longstanding organisational change. It provides organisations with the tools required to achieve systemic racial equity transformation so that people of all racial and ethnic backgrounds can achieve at their highest levels and live their most empowered and powerful lives.
This keynote will give you the insight into three key conceptual elements underpinning the Courageous Conversations About Race model:
Surfacing the 'undiscussable' and having an honest conversation about race in contemporary Australia
Understanding that the combination of 'whiteness' and 'privilege' contributes directly to race-based inequity and power differentials; and
Utilising the above insights to drive social and cultural transformation within personal and professional areas of responsibility
Which will make you and your organisation:
better at inclusive and authentic leadership
better at including multiple perspectives in key decision making thus avoiding group think
raise racial consciousness and increase cultural competency
more responsive and reflective of the changing demographics of Australia
