I gratefully acknowledge the peoples of the Kulin Nation, traditional owners, custodians and guardians of the lands on which I work, and pay my respects to elders past, present and emerging.
Jane Lewis is an engaging facilitator of gutsy yet gentle and compassionate conversations that grow from a background in entertainment and applied psychology.
After 20 years of consulting in leadership and critical thinking, Jane spent seven years at the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, where she began her collaboration with Professor Yin Paradies, a Wakaya man, now Chair in Race Relations and Indigenous Knowledges and Culture Coordinator at Deakin University. Jane operationalised Yin's "reflexive anti-racism" theory and tools into engaging, interactive education for local, state and federal government projects.
A freelancer for six years now, Jane continues to work with Yin and other expert ARC collaborators to deliver AntiRacism education and transformation for corporate, educational and sports organisations.
What is ARC?
ARC AntiRacism is evidence-based education toward equity and justice. Exploring ourselves, the societies we live in, the organisations we work and play in - and our capacity to transform them - ARC experiences are eye-opening and powerful.
AntiRacism Collaborators include Professor Yin Paradies, Terori Hareko-Avaivilla, Josh Wanganeen, Sami Shah, Hema Kangeson, Shankar Kasynathan, Pirooz Jafari and Dr Shishir Ray. They join ARC founder Jane Lewis to deliver AntiRacism Capsules, Conversations, Challenges and Commitments.
