Everyone belongs.

Recognise the richness that multiculturalism brings to our workplaces and communities during Cultural Diversity Week from 16th-24th March & Harmony Day on Thursday 21st March.

With almost half of all Australians either born overseas or having a parent who was, Harmony Day is an opportunity to reflect on how we can continue to build a society based on inclusiveness, respect and belonging.

At Speaking Out, we pride ourselves on connecting clients with a diverse range of inspiring speakers. From academics and advocates to actors and artists; whether you are looking for a one-off talk or a series of events, we will help you find the right speaker for your Harmony Day celebrations – or any other day you choose to celebrate.
