Department of Human Services

We aim to increase the representation of people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds in our workforce. We value and embrace their skills, perspectives and experiences for the benefit of providing culturally appropriate and improved services to the Australian community.

We aim to celebrate the cultural and linguistic diversity of our people, provide a culturally safe and inclusive workplace and have a positive impact on social cohesion.

Our plan supports the government’s Multicultural Access and Equity Policy and the department’s Multicultural Servicing Strategy 2016–19 which focuses on ensuring our programs and services are responsive to the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse customers.
