This morning in Parramatta, at the National Multicultural Women’s Conference 2016, Influencing Change: Vision & Impact, I was awestruck to share a panel with these indomitable, brilliant women;
Dr Jackie Huggins AM (Nat Congress of Australia’s First People’s), Nova Peris OAM, Antionette Braybrook (Aboriginal FV Prevention Service), Zione Walker-Nthenda (Incubate Foundation), Uieta Kaufusi (1800RESPECT) and myself- facilitated by Maria Dimopolous (Myriad Int. Consulting)
‘Speaking the Truth: An Intercultural & Intersectional Dialogue on Recognition, Reconciliation, Responsibility & Collaboration”.
Stepping up to stamp out racism through collective action- acknowledging the perils of privilege and embedded racism that defines many migrant experiences. This was serious introspection- and high time. What a powerful and emotional call to action from the sisterhood – drawn from one of the most capacity rich panels I’ve had the honour to be part of of. #nmwc2016 #mindblown #walkingthetalk #endracism #speakout #makeanoise #makeitlouder
