From 8:30 am to 4:45 pm
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Communities conference explores the solutions to better integrate multicultural communities into the Australian social and economic framework.
Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Communities 2013 will examine the current state and federal policy surrounding multiculturalism, the demographics and variables within ethnic communities and how Australia must adapt its systems so that CALD communities can achieve participation. Through international experiences and domestic presentations from industry leaders and regulatory bodies, the 3rd annual event will explore current trends, best practices for education, employment and healthcare, and the structural and cultural barriers that exist which limit CALD integration.
Key topics include:
Improving cultural understanding within the Australian population
Strategies to increase diversity in education
Workforce and employment- changing the business plan and driving accountability within the company
Integration for youths
Accessing the justice system
Accessibility of healthcare and health promotion
Availability of ageing services
