At its core, a career or the pattern of work-related experiences, is a calling that enables individuals to find meaning for their life. Diversity dimensions intersect and can include, age, appearance, disability, ethnicity, gender, indigeneity, migration, religion, sexuality. Diversity, inclusion and equity involve a choreographed tango with an orchestra of difference and commonality to synchronise beautiful music.
Dichotomies, hierarchies, hegemonies, marginalisation and discrimination are terms associated with diversity, but so too are recognition, affirmation, empathy, creativity and compassion – a world between worlds that this session will explore.
