SBS launches online forum and TV debate on ethnic diversity

SBS has launched a new portal to be followed by a televised forum about ethnic diversity in Australia.

SBS CQ: Cultural Intelligence will engage media commentators, politicians and community advocates for a discussion on whether the media is friend or foe of diversity in Australia.

Michael Ebeid, managing editor of SBS said: “SBS is the catalyst for the national discussion about diversity and SBS CQ will become a conversation series as well as a permanent resource.”

Commentators include former immigration minister Amanda Vanstone, Daily Telegraph journalist Joe Hildebrand, psychiatrist and journalist Tanveer Ahmed and university professor Andrew Markus.

The show will be broadcast on 22 December on SBSTWO and hosted by Anton Enus, World News Australia’s news anchor.

After the debate, SBS CQ will become a permanent fixture on SBS to discuss immigration, refugees and asylum seekers.
