Leading Across Difference

Leading Across Difference: The experience of Community Leadership in Glebe

Margot Rawsthorne

Presentation at Thirteenth International Conference on Diversity in Organisations, Communities, and Nations Charles Darwin University, Darwin, Australia, 26-28 June 2013.

Diversity in Organisations, Communities and Nations is a knowledge community comprised of an international conference, associated journals, book series, and social media forums that offer the opportunity for discussion on the forms and futures of human difference and diversity. At a time of often virulent reactions to difference and globalisation (ethnonationalism, racist backlash, parochialism and protectionism), there is a pressing need to reflect critically on the shape and the possibilities of the normative agendas of diversity and globalism. This knowledge community provides spaces for thinking and speaking about these pressing matters, and in ways that range from the 'big picture' and the theoretical, to the practical and everyday business of negotiating difference and diversity in organistations, communities and civic life.
