University of Technology Sydney 1 Quay Street Haymarket NSW ACFID Sexual Rights in Development Community of Practice Calendar Register

ACFID’s recently revised Code of Conduct places explicit responsibility on all members to recognise, and respond to, intersecting drivers of inequality and marginalisation: including drivers related to gender identity, sexuality and sexual orientation.

But how can organisations adhere to this in contexts where faith is often used to justify discrimination and exclusion of sexual and gender minorities? And how can staff members and volunteers be encouraged to confront their own prejudices and assumptions?

Join us in Sydney on 27 September to explore these questions and more with peers from across the ACFID membership (both faith-based and secular organisations).

This one-day workshop is the third and final stage in an action research project being implemented by the ACFID Sexual Rights in Development Community of Practice, with the support of ACFID and the Research for Development Impact Network.

The workshop is free to attend, and you can register via Eventbrite here.

If you are from a faith-based organisation, please consider also joining the reflection workshop for faith-based organisations being held on 20 August in Melbourne.
