Australia’s biggest celebration of cultural diversity in the workplace is set to return from 15 – 26 March 2021 with more ways than ever for small businesses to take part!
When people feel included at work, employee innovation and productivity increases, while absenteeism falls. Yet one in five people experience discrimination in workplaces of all sizes due to the colour of their skin.
After what has been a very challenging year, it has never been more important to recognise the value of cultural diversity in every Australian workplace and create meaningful opportunities for team members to stay connected.
We are excited to announce the many ways small businesses can get involved in A Taste of Harmony 2021:
- Host a (COVID-safe) physical or virtual lunch or morning tea event with your work team, clients or suppliers. If you are doing it remotely, use our custom Zoom backgrounds.
- Support restaurants and cafes local to your workplace by ordering food and trying different cuisines. Along the way, you’ll be supporting other small businesses, some of which were hit hard by the pandemic.
- If you are a sole trader, or very small team, you can join one of our virtual online events which will include a cook-a-long, panel discussions, and ‘lunch & learn’ sessions with celebrity chefs and cultural diversity leaders.
- Utilise our discussion guides to support your business in cultural diversity best practice.
Register now And we’ll keep you up to date with campaign news and all the details for our online events in the lead-up to March.
