    The diversity panel to end all diversity panels, a live finale for season two!

    The diversity panel to end all diversity panels, a live finale for season two!

    'Diversity' has become a popular talking point across all sectors of work, and diversity panels are regular fixtures of conferences, festivals and corporate events.

    But once the talk is done, and the warm, self-satisfied glow of attending has worn off — where does the hard work begin?

    For its season two finale, It's Not A Race teamed up with Audiocraft to present 'the diversity panel to end all diversity panels' with all-star guests Paola Balla, Santilla Chingaipe and Benjamin Law, live onstage with Beverley Wang, for a conversation about the double-edged sword of standing in for 'diversity' and where they would like to see the conversation progress.

    Also featuring a musical performance by Yeo.

    Who's on the team? Unpacking POC

    People of colour! It's the 'team name' for anyone who doesn't identify as white.

    But how well does this American term fit into the Australian context, and what are the tensions that lie beneath?

    We are unpacking team POC with Sangeetha Thanapal, an activist and writer who identified Chinese Privilege in Singapore, Loretta Ross, educator and US reproductive rights activist, and Eugenia Flynn, arts worker and community organiser.
