SACS, the Scanlon Foundation and Deakin University Partner on Diversity Breakfast

The news this week continued to bring us stories of bullying, harassment and disrespectful behaviours in the workplace. SACS is delighted to have partnered with the Scanlon Foundation, with its focus on social cohesion, and our research partners Deakin University to answer a number of crucial questions on the vital topic of how to maximise respect and minimise harm to others at work.

Andrew Marty, MD of SACS, Anthea Hancocks, CEO of the Scanlon Foundation and Dr Jeromy Anglim, Lecturer in psychology from the School of Psychology at Deakin, will present on the findings from two major research undertakings involving thousands of respondents in workplaces across Australia.

Topics covered will include:

  • Personal characteristics which make people tolerant or intolerant of diversity
  • Are people selectively intolerant, or, if a person is racist, are they more likely to be sexist?
  • How to factor these findings into your recruitment efforts
  • Leadership which fosters more positive and less negative behaviours
  • “Diversity Climate” – how to create a truly safe and welcoming workplace culture.
