Inclusivity Guide 2019

Purpose

This information pack provides links to South African history, data and statistics, diversity theory and a couple of simple practical exercises, to help us better understand AfrikaBurn within the context of the Burn Community and AfrikaBurn within the context of South Africa and the African continent. It’s an opportunity to bring awareness to own power and positions that we carry as individuals.

Bolded links to articles are must reads.

Other links provide background and are recommended reading.
