Next Edition

'The impact of white privilege in Canberra' is the theme for Issue 80, the Winter 2017 edition of Update. Members are welcome to contribute articles on the theme.

We are keen to publish articles from diverse perspectives on how white privilege impacts the Canberra community. Community sector workers, managers, service users, and individual members of the community are all encouraged to share their views.

Some ideas include:

  • What are the signs of white privilege?
  • Who experiences the benefits of white privilege?
  • How do individuals and communities lose out in the face of white privilege?
  • Are we making any progress on dismantling white privilege?
