RightsTalk: Advancing Aboriginal social and economic rights through effective governance of governments
On Tuesday 20 May, The Hon Fred Chaney AO will present a RightsTalk focussed on advancing Aboriginal social and economic rights.
While some progress has been made in reducing Aboriginal disadvantage, applying the lessons learnt by governments over the past 40 years continues to be problematic.
At a time of unprecedented political focus on Aboriginal advancement, the biggest challenge remains 'the how' rather than 'the what'. There are promising developments which provide a real prospect that government might break through the delivery barrier.
This RightsTalk is at the Australian Human Rights Commission, from 2:30pm to 4pm. Level 3, 175 Pitt Street, Sydney.
On Thursday 29 May, Federal Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick will host African Women's Voices with special guests Juliana Nkrumah, Founder Advisor of African Women Australia, Mabel Imali Isolio, Gender Consultant based in Nairobi, Kenya, and participating women from the 'Our Bodies, Our Voices, Our Lives Conference – FGM Program'.
This session will give voice to African women issues and rights on female genital mutilation and the importance of the role of women's leadership within the community.
This RightsTalk is at the Australian Human Rights Commission, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Level 3, 175 Pitt Street, Sydney.
I'm author of History in a Year by the Conservative Voice aka History of the World in a Year by the Conservative Voice.
I'm the Conservative Voice.
I'm looking to make contact with those who might use my skill.
I have an m-audio mobile pre amp fed by the audiotechnica 2041sp condensor mic pack. Prior to 15/4/06, I'd used a Shure sm-58 that required a nuclear blast to register a sound or the internal mic of my aged imac, which has a penchance to recording my breathing. I also used a Griffin itrip, until the community convinced me it was not hiding my talent as well as the other mics.
I am a Writer and an occasional Math Teacher (Sir, what's the occasion?). I like to sing, having no instrumental talent (cannot even clap in time, and yes, I'm aware singing badly IS obnoxious).
I have performed the finale to Les Miserables before an audience of 500. I have also sung before a similar audience (students, parents) renditions of 'I Will' (Beatles), 'Mr Cairo' (Jon Vangelis) and 'I am Australian' (Seekers). Now I seek another profession because the audience hates me ..
