ABOUT THE DIVERSITY CONFERENCE 2000

CONFERENCE HOSTED BY THE
UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY, SYDNEY AND
RMIT UNIVERSITY, MELBOURNE
  • Keynote addresses by politicians, community leaders and prominent academics.
  • Parallel paper and workshop sessions for presentation of case studies of diversity in practice and the new research findings.
  • A time for community affirmation and celebration, as well as sharing stimulating ideas for the future.
 
To be held one week after the final meeting of the Reconciliation Council, this conference sets out to reflect on the challenges of diversity for Australia. Jointly hosted by The University of Technology, Sydney and RMIT University, the conference attempts to create neutral ground for considered reflection of the issues continuing to face Australia that arise from our Indigenous diversity, our immigrant diversity and our location in a region where diversity is a central and pressing issue. The conference will examine diversity issues from the ground up: ranging from the practical logistics of managing diversity in organisations and local communities, to the question of how we negotiate diversity at the national level (reconciliation, multiculturalism), to the larger context of regional and global cultural diversity.

The conference participants would consist of:

  • Community leaders and community members.
  • Representatives of local, state and federal governments-public servants and politicians.
