The Business of Multiculturalism Forum
The forum explored key multicultural issues and helped to connect businesses, government and diverse communities, by showcasing examples of inspirational practice and innovative solutions.
The Cultural Diversity Week Event was hosted by ECCV and Polaron Language Services and took place on March 24th at Russell Kennedy Lawyers in Melbourne CBD. It was aimed at enhancing scope for engagement, partnering & sustainability by connecting the commercial and community sectors in Victoria. The project was aimed at ensuring organisations are aware of the importance of the changes in the not-for-profit sector, moving towards a market oriented sector and adopting new approaches to operating. As well as providing the necessary avenues for building skill sets and opportunities for training to support volunteer driven, ethno-specific and multicultural organisations to become more sustainable.
