Racism prevention: becoming anti-racist


Multicultural Queensland Month – Queensland’s largest multicultural celebration – is held in August each year.

This year we acknowledge the role that everyone plays in contributing to Queensland’s culture and prosperity through the theme Inclusion in action’.

Queensland is a multicultural success story and the month presents an opportunity to increase awareness of the benefits of diversity, while sharing the innovative ways people and organisations are making Queensland communities strong and cohesive.

Multicultural Queensland Month is an opportunity for everyone across the state to come together to contribute, share, perform, listen, learn and acknowledge that, while we may come from different communities and cultures, we all love living in Queensland.

MATE is facilitating a series of free webinars across Multicultural Queensland Month (MQM) in partnership with the Queensland Government, so that we can discuss ways in which we can all contribute to safe and inclusive communities for all people. These webinars are proudly brought to you by the Queensland Government, Commonwealth Bank and Telstra.

The first webinar in the series – Racism Prevention: Becoming Anti-Racist – will discuss the bystander approach to challenging racism, and the work we need to do on ourselves to ensure that we are actively anti-racist.

During this webinar we will:

  • Discover what it means to be anti-racist
  • Explore how to increase your capacity to be anti-racist
  • Explore the cultural attitudes that contribute to racism
  • Understand what you can say to challenge racism as an effective bystander
  • Discuss the questions that reflect anti-racism fixed mindset or a growth mindset
