Agency multicultural plan

Australia’s Multicultural Access and Equity Policy - Respecting diversity and improving Responsiveness is aimed at ensuring a socially inclusive society in which all Australians feel valued and have the opportunity to participate fully in the life of our society.

The policy requires that all Australian Government departments and agencies prepare biennial Agency Multicultural Plans that start on 1 July 2013.

Our Agency Multicultural Plan 2013-15 outlines how we will improve access and equity, for all eligible Australians, in the areas of:

  • leadership
  • engagement
  • performance
  • capability
  • responsiveness
  • openness.

See Department of Social Services - Settlement and Multicultural Affairs for more information on access and equity.
