Empathy in the Face of Diversity is the theme behind the Human Rights Commission’s 11th Diversity Forum to be held in Auckland this September.
“We live in one of the most ethnically diverse nations on the planet – it’s also one of the most peaceful,” said Race Relations Commissioner Dame Susan Devoy.
“Whether we pass this legacy on to our children and their children is up to us. If we take the time to walk in someone else’s shoes, to see the world through someone else’s eyes we will be a stronger, more resilient nation and we will be better people.”
“The forum’s free and it’s open to everyone so I encourage Kiwis, particularly Aucklanders to come and learn and build with us.”
