COVID-19 has caused a disturbing rise in racism against Asian Australians while the US Black Lives Matter movement has shone a light on the continued injustices and inequalities experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples in our society.

It’s clear that more action is needed to tackle racism in Australia but what role can and should employers and indeed all of us play in eradicating it and creating more inclusive workplaces and communities?

Lisa Annese, DCA’s CEO, will ask some important questions of a special guest panel to examine:

  • Why racism continues to be a problem in this country
  • How and why culturally diverse and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians are still excluded at work
  • How important it is to actively call out racism
  • What needs to be done to raise Indigenous and other culturally diverse voices
  • How well-intentioned people and institutions can move beyond tokenism to becoming a leader on change for the better.
