Stirring the pot. Introducing Adjust the Contrast 

We’re into diversity in Australia. Or so we say. We’ve got a favourite local Thai place, we have women’s leagues for our favourite sports which we identify by putting the word “Womens” in the title, and we watch You Can’t Ask That, sometimes. We say we want to embrace difference, but is that only until it makes us uncomfortable.  We like talking about diversity. But do we really know how to do it? And how to make the most of it?

Join Adam Liaw as he hosts Adjust the Contrast, a podcast brought to you by FAST, about why diversity matters - and how it can help you reduce risks and seize endless opportunities. 

The six-part series looks at what we can learn about diversity from nature, how we are cursed by our own filters when it comes to how we see people and the world. Hear from the nation’s leading thinkers about how inclusion and how diversity can lead to better, bigger ideas - how diversity equals opportunity in Australia in 2020.
