This morning I conducted a training session on ‘Muslim Community Awareness and Cultural Competence’ for the City of Darebin executive.
This was a robust and in depth analysis of the communal demographics, psycho social issues residents experience and the consequences of divisive rhetoric and hurtful media portrayal.
In all, the conversations and learnings that followed were meaningful and will hopefully result in social change for the municipality informed by improved engagement, increased representation and a more inclusive LGA
The City of Darebin are to be commended for actively walking their ‘welcoming community strategies’ talk, via this and further sessions tailored to improve connections with its diverse communities.
Proactive commitment like this sets the bar high for other municipalities to emulate in a bid to make diverse Australians respected and included in the communities they live and work in.
