Rathana Chea – ChangeMaker Chat – Diversity and Climate

You listen to this episode on the ACAST app HERE, or search for us on all the usual podcast apps using “ChangeMakers Podcast” – look out for the Orange Square!

There is a lot of talk about the need for diversity, but what does diversity actually mean? 

In this conversation Rathana Chea shares how he has learnt how to value the power of difference and connection across his time in making social change, sharing insights from social movements while he was in school, to community organising, to working with Greenpeace International and now working to create the Multicultural Leadership Initiative as part of the Australian climate movement.

This conversation cuts through the platitudes that often dominate “diversity talk”, responding to the language of awkward politeness with a practice of kindness and clarity about how to create space where people of colour can lead and thrive because they are driving movements that speak to their own needs and interests.
