Hi I’m Tharini Rouwette, host of Allies in Politics podcast and I'm passionate about getting more people of colour engaged in politics. My personal experience as well as my own research shows we are desperately in need of a 101 of politics to ease more of us into politics. There’s also a missed opportunity to engage with new citizens/residents as they start their lives in Australia. Because EVERYTHING’S political, it’s important that we become engaged and participate actively in the political process. Politics as we know it is still significantly white male and "Karen" dominated and so it’s critical that we add more diverse representation in government so that we have a government that works for all of us. As an immigrant myself, I have an intimate understanding of what my challenges are in seeking to educate myself about Australian politics and in figuring out the correct pathway for meaningful participation. This is why I started the Allies in Politics podcast to, in my own way, be that 101 of politics for POCs and new residents in Australia and help them understand the pathways available to them to become politically active in a meaningful way.
