After briefly defining and detailing the nature of racism, this presentation will describe the Localities Embracing and Accepting Diversity (LEAD) program which was initiative by the Victorian Health Promotion Foundation to build the evidence and knowledge base for reducing race-based discrimination and supporting diversity, including exploring the relationship between anxiety, depression and racial discrimination. LEAD findings will be presented in relation to self-reported experiences of racism survey conducted across four Victorian local government areas (LGAs), impacts of racism on health and wellbeing and evaluation of anti-racism interventions undertaken during the LEAD program with a particular focus on Indigenous Australians. The presentation will conclude with a discussion of barriers/enables in anti-racism interventions, knowledge translation to date and future research directions.
