Diversity Calendar

Celebrate. Learn. Engage.


One way of promoting greater inclusion of all staff is by celebrating / acknowledging the significant days, festivals or other events not already recognised, for example, by public holidays. An edited selection of these days is provided in our calendar below. More comprehensive diversity calendars are also available for free:
  • The Australian Government's Harmony Day website lists the days celebrated by Australia's major ethnic and religious communities
  • The United Nations also provides a list of the days, weeks, years, and decades that they observe, each with a designated theme or topic
