Resilience Against Racism is a project developed by Cultural Intelligence and Beyond Story that aims to help people build personal and community resilience to cope with adversaries such as racism. We run a number of workshops for people who may have experienced racism themselves, a direct witness or indirect witness to racism. Driven by an evidence-based approach, the workshops are facilitated by trained culturally diverse workplace psychologists and co-designed by people with lived experience and culturally diverse social innovators with deep understanding on how cultural diversity impacts on design and delivery of the programs.

About this Event

Everyone deserves to belong. Whether you are a recently arrived international student who is living and studying in Australia temporarily or an Australian of different cultural backgrounds, every person regardless of race and religion deserves to feel belong in Australia. However, according to the Scanlon Foundation Mapping Social Cohesion report, 1 in 5 people experience racism in the community. In these few months since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen more racist sentiments towards people of Asian appearance.
