The Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA) is proud to announce the release of a new series of factsheets, developed in conjunction with industry experts and professionals, aimed at fostering greater awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity in Australian workplaces.
The factsheets were formally launched by Senator the Hon Kate Lundy, Minister for Multicultural Affairs, at an event hosted by the Australian Government Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) in Dandenong, Victoria, on Monday, 29 July 2013.
The series of factsheets are the culmination of a year-long project undertaken by FECCA, called Harmony in the Workplace: Delivering the Diversity Dividend, funded and supported by DIAC’s Diversity and Social Cohesion Program.
Comprised of a series of ten factsheets in total, the resources cover a diverse range of issues, from exploring cultural diversity in the context of Australia’s broader workforce, to legal frameworks concerning workplace discrimination. They also discuss myths and commonly held misperceptions about cultural diversity in the workplace, as well as tips on maximising cultural diversity for the benefit of organisations and their employees.
