All One Together is an anti-racism project which aims at supporting employers to improve their diversity and inclusion approaches at work.
People spend a lot of time in workplaces, and so facing racism and discrimination at work impacts people in big way.
Our Ambassadors have taken a public stance against racism by signing up to become anti-racism ambassadors.
What is Anti-racism?
Anti-racism is a range of ideas and actions which are meant to counter racial prejudice, systemic racism, and the oppression of specific racial groups. Anti-racism is usually structured around conscious efforts and deliberate actions which are intended to provide equal opportunities for all people on both an individual and a systemic level.
Utilising an anti-racist lens involves recognising the reality of our racial and ethnic diversity and agrees that more knowledge about and valuing of others is a distinct improvement on ethnocentrism and discrimination. It accepts that there are interests and conflicts involved, and that explanations about social relations, including racial and ethnic relations, must rest on an analysis of institutions and social relations and processes.
Anti-racism does not simply mean helping people from marginalised backgrounds, but rather it means working with them or among ourselves, while contesting assumptions. It assumes that race and culture are important parts of our personal and social identities and that they are crucial determinants (along with gender and class) of our life.
ECCV commissioned Victoria University to prepare an evidence review on anti-racism, and diversity and inclusion measures in employment contexts and related organisational settings.
ECCV acknowledges the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation as the Traditional Owners of the Country on which we work. We pay respect to their Elders past and present, acknowledge their continuing connections to land, sea and community, and extend respect to Traditional Owners throughout Victoria.
