ABOUT DIVERSITY 2001

  • 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.

Following the outstanding success of the first National Conference on Reconciliation, Multiculturalism, Immigration and Human Rights held last year at the University of Technology, Sydney, we would like to invite you to our second national conference-which we are now planning as an annual event.

This year's focus is on diversity on the ground, the ever-present realities of diversity in communities, and the constructive and optimistic responses made by local government, within communities themselves and in business.

Once again, the conference will attempt 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.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • Representatives of local, state and federal governments
  • Politicians and public administrators.
  • Community leaders and community members.
  • Academics.
  • Community workers.
  • Union representatives.
  • Media representatives.
  • Private and public sector: diversity management, equal employment opportunity, human resource development.
  • Customer relationship managers.
  • The conference venue is fully accessible.

WHAT YOU'LL TAKE FROM THE CONFERENCE

  • Broad debate, challenges to your thinking, inspiration ...
  • Practical 'how to' strategies, showcasing initiatives.
