The Nelspruit Campus in the North-Eastern Region, in cooperation with Tirisano Collaborative and Community Engagement Projects in the Department of Sociology of the College of Human Science, sponsored a community and workplace conversation titled Diversity and Transformation in the Workplace.
This arose as a result of the project leader realizing the importance of collaborating across regions to build on the work done in Gauteng in previous years. The discussion intended to spark talks with a purpose, as well as dialogues that grow, develop and encourage students, faculty, and community members to live up to their full potential. It also seeks to address any types of obstacles that may exist in the business, community, and school contexts, such as issues of culture, race, sexuality, sexual orientation, gender, and diversity, which cause difference and miscommunication.
Dr Lesiba Phineas Molepo, North-Eastern Regional Deputy Director, emphasized in his welcome address that we should cover all sorts of diversities and that we must all push ourselves and ask how what we do would affect a person living with a disability. This will assist us in better-accommodating persons with impairments and make them feel more at home in our facilities. “We have never had this kind of workshop in a while here on our campus and this is the beginning of the new development that will be sustained to benefit our community,” he said.
Vusi Mkwanazi concurred with Dr Molepo and said that when we talk about diversity, we must remember that there is workplace diversity as well as community diversity. This was due to the participation of Transnet, Spar, and the Legal Fraternity members, who came to discuss their experiences with diversity in the private sector.
“As we sit here we don’t have the same diversity because when we look at you we may see men and race, gender, and this shows that diversity is much bigger, and this is why we should have a conversation about this,” said Leon Roets, Project Manager.
He added: “We started this project by saying that the number of people who are infected by HIV is growing and that was a cause for concern to say that something is not okay, and we have to have conversations about it. We cannot talk about HIV without talking about gender, racism, and socioeconomic status such as unemployment, poverty, rural versus urban and classes where the gap between the rich and the poor is becoming bigger and bigger.
“Diversity is the space whereby we start to look at all these issues and obviously, we cannot resolve everything just by sitting here and having this conversation, but we hope that it will give you courage to go to your home, to your friends and to the workplaces and say, we need to have a conversation about diversity issues.”
The Tirisano Collaborative and Community Engagement Projects hope to have more of these conversations so that they can bring together the workplace, students, community, and institution to discuss these difficult problems.
