Partners in humanity: How Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia manage harmony and diversity
To mark the 2019 Eisenhower Day of Fellowship, the Fellows of Indonesia, New Zealand and Australia collaborated on a conference with the theme of social harmony and diversity, focusing on how these countries have managed the significant challenges each has faced in the past year. Sessions included discussions on the impact of migration; embracing differences across race and beliefs; and challenges and opportunities in diversity and inclusion. Strengthening multilateral relations and bringing together stakeholders from government, business, academia, non-profit and the media, the conference was a day of impact and solutions.
A full day of sessions and networking began with a welcome speech from host, His Excellency Tantowi Yahya (Indonesia ’05) Ambassador to New Zealand, Samoa and Tonga, followed by keynote speaker Bambang Brodjonegoro (Indonesia ’02) National Development Planning Minister for the government of Indonesia. The day concluded with dinner hosted by the New Zealand Fellows.
