Cultural Diversity Week

Our multicultural story is part of who we are, and something we’ve been celebrating all week for Cultural Diversity Week - Victoria’s largest multicultural celebration.

Cultural Diversity Week features an exciting program of festivals and events across metropolitan and regional areas. Be sure to check out what’s on near you for the rest of the week

Diverse and inclusive workplaces are safe workplaces, where staff can learn from each other, helping to make better decisions and deliver better outcomes for the community. Take a moment to hear from our people what diversity means to them.

Inspired by this year’s theme Proud to Belong: Your Generation Your Stories, DELWP hosted a Living Library series of talks. Speakers shared their personal stories and reflected on their experiences working with Victoria’s multicultural communities.

People across DELWP also hosted morning teas and shared dishes from their culture - a great way share stories and celebrate Cultural Diversity Week.

All week we’ve been using our social channels as a platform to feature the inspiring people who spoke at our Cultural Diversity Week events. Scroll down to learn a little more about them.
