I have requested that Community Development of Cairns Regional Council conversations with myself take place via email, to formalise and legalise the content.
Yesterday I was Treated Unfavourably- Differently to Others, by an upper management staffer; she accused me of ‘twisting’ information (I presented documented facts) and of being ‘mischeviousness’ (I had cited a specific Council Policy Section re. Anti-Discrimination values); “to preerve dignity and equality”.
I doubt others are treated as I was on the phone, hence all calls will now be recorded and I have nominated email for future interactions.
The Anti-Discrimination Commission has let me know how I have grounds for a personal compaint, and that the Ngulpa Ngulpa Women’s Wellbeing Group leading MBL Power 4 Solutions, also has grounds for indirect and indirect Discrimination. And that was before the phone call with the asaid manager.
I was told on the phone that CD has, “never said they cannot have a key” and agreed that a time could be organised for a key to be signed for. Awaiting the Key Holder to reply to email/phone messages, only made late Friday arvo.
The manager asked, “so they will pay the bond and the key deposit?”
CD waived the bond when they approved the application, there was only to be a key deposit.
Key pickup was moved from the neighbouring suburb of Manoora (where others last week picked up the key), to 7kms away, the Council Chambers.
When transport issues were raised by me, CD decided that they would open and close the Centre for the Women.
Paternal. Discriminatory. Impractical.
How to set into action Professional Practice Values where personal paternal agendas are devalued?
