On the 28/5/19, I attended the Relationships Australias launch of their Diversity and Inclusion Statement. This is an important piece of work that I have been personally involved in. I was a participant in the RAQs Access and Inclusion Community Collaboration Group. This group helped provide feedback from people of diverse backgrounds on access and inclusion. This feedback was then used to develop a framework of access and inclusion throughout Relationships Australia. I am very proud to have been a part of something that will create positive change for many people.
