The Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Assistant Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Senator the Hon Zed Seselja recently released the Australian Government’s new multicultural statement ‘ Multicultural Australia : United, Strong, Successful’ reaffirming the Government’s commitment to a culturally diverse and harmonious society. Australia is the most successful multicultural society in the world, uniting a multitude of cultures, experiences, beliefs, and traditions. We owe our accomplishments as a nation to the contributions of more than 300 different ancestries—from the First Australians to the newest arrivals.
At Fortis, we whole-heartedly promote the view that a multicultural society reaps huge benefits to our social capital and economy. By building mutual obligations between government, the community, and the individual – regardless of nationality – strengthens our resilience and sense of belonging and contributes to a prosperous community.
We are proud of the way we develop relationships with government, community, private and NFP bodies throughout Australia to harness diversity, build capacity and maximise the benefits that diversity brings to organisations and their community.
We would love to hear about the great work that is being undertaken across our business community. We are interested in exploring synergies and approaches and sharing stories that advance and celebrate our multicultural society.
