Diversity and Inclusion of the Victorian and Australian workforce industry is an emerging issue within the employment landscape. The Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria (ECCV) in conjunction with iEmpower Inc Youth Services presents: The ECCV 2018 State Conference, Workplace rEvolution: Blueprints for a Diverse Tomorrow.

ECCV Chairperson Kris Pavlidis said “ECCV continues to be strong conduit between multicultural communities, government and the wider community for over forty years. The aim of the 2018 Conference is to explore the impact of differing mindsets about diversity and inclusion across the three sectors; Government, Not-for-Profit and Business & Social Enterprise.  We also aim to create ongoing partnerships across the sectors at and beyond the Conference.” 

“The ECCV State Conference will lead public discussion addressing the issues of unemployment and underemployment of all Victorians from culturally diverse backgrounds. Conference sessions will have a strong focus on future income earning opportunities to benefit employers, diverse jobseekers, business leaders and future entrepreneurs.”

Economic and industry environments are embracing a culture of inclusion and respect for diversity. “It is essential all sectors, industries and groups come together at the 2018 state conference to share stories, ideas and thoughts about how policy can be shaped to improve workplace opportunities and experiences of culturally and linguistically diverse Victorians” said the ECCV Chairperson.

ECCV has confirmed more than 40 speakers representing a wide range of relevant industry bodies, companies and groups including the Brookfield Institute (CANADA), LaunchVic, Startup Victoria, Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources, Department of Education and Training, AMES Australia and Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health and the federal Department of Jobs and Small Business, to name a few.
