We @ICRC surveyed more than 16,000 millennials in 16 countries and territories about their views on #conflict, #warfare and the values underpinning international humanitarian law. There are both encouraging and worrying findings- see thread. #IHL #IntLaw… 47% believe it's more likely than not that there will be a third World War in their lifetime. #WWIII

I am excited to arrive in #Melbourne to take part in the first-ever Asian-Australian Leadership Summit, which aims to highlight and address the under-representation of Asian-Australians in political, business, government and civil society leadership. #AsianAusLeadership @Asialink_au @PwC_AU @OrgAALA @Austrade @BankofMelb @Committee4Melb @dfat @AusUnlimited @asiacapable @AsArticulations The Leading for Change report highlights the lack of #CulturalDiversity in senior leadership. While Anglo-Australians represent 58% of population, they hold 76% of senior leadership positions. Those from non-European background are under-represented by 16%. #AsianAusLeadership
