Was honoured to be named as one of several anti-racism champions, advocating concerns about racism in Australia and combatting systems of privilege that facilitate it.
“I am a strong advocate for demanding a platform for inclusion when experiences of diversity in gender and culture are being tabled – and am quick to call out the hypocrisy of some ‘diversity forums’ which when held, somehow exclude the expertise of the very communities they claim to be advocating for.
“I see cultural diversity increasingly as the norm in the way a globalised world evolves.. which require systems and people to be adaptive in order to stay competitive, and relevant. Parochial thinking in a progressive world, causes regression.
Speak out against even micro-racial aggressions. Ignoring them makes you complicit in a racist discourse, which feed racist attitudes, which elicit racist behaviours, which inform racist policy. From little racisms, big ones grow.”
