What does diversity mean for the Salvos?

The Salvation Army State Social Command, Victoria is running a conference entitled ‘Intersectionality – Policy and Practice in Service Delivery’ in Melbourne, from Wednesday, 25 October to Friday, 27 October.

Diversity

‘Intersectionality,’ the organisers explain, ‘refers to how a diverse set of identities intersect and affect the lived experience and well-being of each client as a whole person. Intersecting identities include race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, ability or disability, socioeconomic status, first-generation status, and more.’

Guest speakers include Celeste Liddle, Victoria’s gender and sexuality commissioner, Rowena Allen, associate professor Paul Ramacharan, professor Adele Murdolo, and professor Karen Farquharson. A report will be published next issue.
