Australia is a culturally diverse nation but much work still needs to be done to ensure people aren't discriminated against on the grounds of culture, religion, gender, age, disability or sexuality
The Diversity Council Australia website has some great advice for workplaces. Read more here and here

Project Implicit

Are you interested in testing exploring the beliefs, attitudes and assumptions that you may be unwilling to admit to others?

If so, take The Implicit Association Test. In many cases it will reveal an attitude that you didn't realise you had eg you may state that you believe that women and men should be equally associated with science, but you might automatically associate men with science more often than you do women. The test can reveal thoughts and feelings that are outside your conscious awareness and control, and reveal hidden biases and prejudices. Fascinating stuff!

SBS Cultural Atlas (feature)

The SBS Cultural Atlas

Want to know more about other cultures and societies?
The Cultural Atlas by SBS is a great place to start. 

The world map makes it easy to navigate but if the map isn't your style try the list of countries organised alphabetically with images of their flags. Are you looking for a specific term related to cultural values, behaviours or concepts? Try out the glossary - extremely comprehensive and easy to search.

We highly recommend this fantastic online resource by the SBS.
