    Course Description


    Recent research carried out as part of the Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs’ Productive Diversity Partnerships program indicates that while there is growing awareness of an interest in diversity, there remains a low level of practical action to capitalise on the opportunities afforded by Australia’s new and emerging communities.

    A common response to presentations on the benefits of diversity is “Yes, I understand, but what do we actually do?” This program is designed to help bridge the gap between understanding and action, between rhetoric and reality.

    There are four prerequisites to effectively working with diversity in new and emerging communities

    • Openness in both talking and listening.
    • Empathy.
    • Authenticity and self acceptance.
    • Being a serious student of diversity.
