You may remember that last August, All Together Now’s Everyday Racism app won an Intercultural Innovation Award. Part of the prize includes attendance at capacity building workshops to build our organisation’s sustainability.
So, last week I flew to South Carolina in North America as a guest of United Nations Alliance of Civilizations (UNAOC) and the BMW Group tolearn more about fundraising, leadership and interpersonal excellence. I had the chance to practice pitching All Together Now’s work to several philanthropists and gain some useful insights into how we could improve our strategy and communications.
I am extremely grateful to both UNAOC and BMW for their support, encouragement, and connections, enabling us to improve our work in Australia.
As a result of this prize, All Together Now is able to expand on what it learned from building the Everyday Racism app. Our team is now creating an educational iPad app for 8-10 year olds to teach them about racial bias. This app is expected to be launched in mid-2016. We are currently working very closely with some academics in both Australia and the USA to ensure this app will be evidence-based and independently evaluated.
