The Democracy in Colour POC Placement Program is an on-the-job training program for emerging campaigners of colour.
The program intends to transform the face of social movements to be more inclusive and representative of people of colour (POC) and our communities.
Organisations participating in the program will be empowered to move beyond tokenistic engagement and representation of communities of colour to achieving genuine racial and social justice outcomes and meaningful impact.
Together we will create greater participation and leadership by communities of colour to build the reach, relevance and overall power to make change.
We invite not-for-profit organisations to participate in the POC Placement Program in 2022.

Why participate in Democracy in Colour’s Senior Placement Program?
Democracy in Colour has the expertise and community networks to support organisations with the sourcing, training, professional development, coaching and retention of highly capable and talented staff of colour.
The POC Placement Program provides in-depth training and coaching to build and support on-the-job learning, confidence building and up-skilling and overall effective professional development alongside a supportive brainstrust of like-minded campaigners of colour.
Key to the program’s success is that it creates safe spaces by working with participating organisations to build anti-oppression and racially just cultures rooted in equity and fairness.
