Anti-racism is a core tenet of ECCV’s work, and has been since our inception in 1974. We have contributed to a range of policy and advocacy initiatives and led a number of projects to strengthen the foundations for a Victoria that is inclusive, socially cohesive and safe and vibrant for all.
One of ECCV’s flagship anti-racism projects has been All One Together, which focused on supporting workplaces to advance their diversity and inclusion policies and practices. More than 25 organisations became All One Together ambassadors, taking the pledge to transform their workplaces into spaces that are culturally safe and inclusive.
We are currently partnering with the Islamic Council of Victoria on a Victoria University-led research project to better understand how to reduce barriers to reporting racism. Findings from the project will help inform recommendations on improving support services for Victorians who experience racism.

All One Together
All One Together is ECCV’s anti-racism project, which aims at supporting workplaces across Victoria to improve their diversity and inclusion policies and practices.
Private companies, public employers and third-sector organisations can play an important role in reducing internal structural barriers that have perpetuated inequity and exclusion for various groups and communities – and in doing so, lead the way towards a greater and deeper appreciation of diversity more broadly.
Help improve anti-racism support services
ECCV is partnering with Victoria University and the Islamic Council of Victoria on a new research project, funded by VicHealth, to better support people experiencing racism.
Through community consultations and an online survey, the Victoria University research team, led by Associate Professor Mario Peucker, aim to identify gaps to reporting racism and to put forward recommendations on how to improve support services for Victorians experiencing racism.
