Harmony Week was celebrated on Thursday 23rd March 2023 to recognise the multiculturalism within the Centre for Agricultural Economics and Development (CAED).
In the spirit of team building a morning tea was organised where people brought a plate of food from their cultural background to share. People were encouraged to wear a traditional outfit that represents their cultural heritage, or alternatively to wear something orange, the official Harmony Week colour.
It was a respectful occasion with some meaningful conversations, including everyone teaching the group how to say good morning/hello/welcome in their home language! The morning tea was initiated by CAED Deputy Director, A/Professor Fay Rola-Rubzen, who is also a member of the School's Equity & Diversity Committee.
If you are interested in initiating something special in our centre for Harmony Week next year, please contact a member of the School's Equity & Diversity Committee or CAED manager, Tammie Harold at firstname.lastname@example.org
