18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Global Diversity Challenges in the 21st Century Website | More Information
Effective management of diversity in society and workplaces continues to present challenges in the 21st century. Diversity management remains a fragmented research discipline and profession which suffers from crises of legitimacy and trust. Despite an ‘it’s good for us: it’s good for business’ mantra, diversity management still attracts resistance ranging from active backlash to passive indifference.

The lively interactive lecture will explore reasons for this resistance and highlight understandings of how diversity management contributes to an organisation’s triple bottom line (people, profit and planet related performance outcomes). Drawing on his extensive research collaboration with a wide range of industries and organisations, Professor Özbilgin will outline how to develop evidence based arguments to achieve support from leadership and line management for diversity management initiatives; as well as provide models which can aid assessment of diversity management activities from multiple perspectives and interests including strategy, employee well-being and productivity, reputation, profit and competitiveness. The lecture will be interactive and audience members will be able to contribute to the discussion.

Cost: free, RSVP required vis https://www.ias.uwa.edu.au/lectures/ozbilgin

12:00 - Art Exhibition - The Art of Zhen Shan Ren International Exhibition : A compelling fine art exhibition reflecting the human rights situation in China (Free event) Website | More Information
The Art of Zhen Shan Ren (Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance) takes viewers through the story of Falun Dafa - from its introduction to the public in 1992, through the beauty and enlightenment of the practice, to the unjust and unrelenting persecution, moving forward through the peaceful resistance of Falun Dafa practitioners worldwide who seek to bring an end to the persecution, then through themes of karmic retribution, salvation and grace, and finishing with a moment of choice.

Storytelling has long been one of fine art's greatest joys, and this Exhibition's ability to cross cultural, lingual and ethnic barriers is highlighted each time it is shown.

Inspired by tradition and divinity, the artists paint - often collaboratively - stories either experienced by themselves or shared by fellow Falun Dafa practitioners worldwide. Realist oil painting, or Neo-Renaissance, was chosen as the style for its narrative capabilities, accessibility and, above all, its purity.

The Exhibition aims to educate and draw focus to an unjust persecution - to record a moment in time when the universal principles of Truth, Compassion, Forbearance are openly opposed. It also highlights the danger of becoming involved in the persecution through state-run ventures such as forced labour and forced organ harvesting of Falun Dafa practitioners. Outlasting these sombre themes, however, is a steady message of hope and fulfilment, as the enduring courage and belief of practitioners bring positive change in numerous dark settings.

A central hope of founding artist Professor Zhang's mission is to promote, through fine art, the understanding that freedom of belief is a fundamental human right, and to raise awareness.
