‘Be You’ vs ‘Be Me’ : Assimilation vs Integration

August 17, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm


This workshop is targeted towards young migrants aged 15-25 and will provide a safe space for young people to learn the difference between assimilation vs integration as well as cultural diversity within Australia.  It provides a great opportunity for young people to voice their opinions, thoughts and discuss their shared experiences in resettling in Australia. The workshop will provide young people with the tools to engage in conversations with other people in their communities and how to encourage change.


The workshop will be facilitated by Fadzi Whande. Fadzi is a Global Diversity and Inclusion Strategist, award-winning Social Justice Advocate and Keynote Speaker. Her background ranges from launching telecommunication networks to addressing gender equality, racism, discrimination, health disparities, financial literacy, unemployment and social disadvantage across various sectors in Africa, United Kingdom, USA and Australia. Fadzi is currently the Inclusion and Diversity Adviser for the University of Western Australia.


The workshop is co-developed with Fadzi Whande alongside Relationships Australia, Headspace Armadale and Communicare.
