The other weak, I was invited to Melbourne's Monash University, to speak on a panel at the 5th ACFID University Network Conference on "Evidence and Practice in an Age of Inequality."
It was an incredible experience and I honestly felt so blessed to be able to speak truth to the efforts of the #Pacific #ClimateWarriors in highlighting the incomplete narrative of our people at the forefront of climate change, and how that in itself, was a form of inequality!
On the panel, I spoke alongside such powerful women who are doing amazing things in this world! Yen Vo, the Founder of the Disability Research and Development Centre in Ho Chi Minh City, Zakia Baig, a human rights activist from Pakistan and the Founding Director of the Australian Hazara Women's Friendship Network, and Ei Shwe Win, the Program Director of the Socially Marginalized People program at CARE International in Myanmar!
We covered issues surrounding gender, disability and ethnic minorities, as well as the disproportional effects of climate change and how they are just a few of the intersecting forms of discrimination that are part of wider net of the experience of inequality- materially and socially.
