In the 2017 Monash Youth Action Plan Survey, 79% of young people in Monash identified that they were concerned about the issue of discrimination.
Monash Youth Ambassadors undertook further consultation and identified that race and physical appearance were the main 2 themes for discrimination against young people. In further focus group discussions, it became clear that stereotyping people according to how they look was a key experience in the lives of people in Monash.
As a result of this research, Monash Youth Ambassadors together with Monash Youth Services have since developed a public image that promotes inclusion and equality. We present to you …. ‘Take a closer look’.
