The Queensland Government is now in caretaker mode until after the state election. Minimal updates will be made to this site until after the election results are declared.

Our story, our future is the Queensland Government’s multicultural policy promoting an inclusive, harmonious and united community for Queensland.

The policy focuses on three policy priorities for culturally diverse communities and Queensland as a whole – achieving culturally responsive government; supporting inclusive, harmonious and united communities; and improving economic opportunities. It is being implemented through a three year Queensland Multicultural Action Plan 2016–17 to 2018–19.

The department has responsibility for reporting progress on three actions in the action plan:

  • deliver on the Public Service Commission 2022 foundation non-English speaking background diversity targets for the Queensland public sector
  • provide training to address unconscious bias and other barriers in recruitment and selection
  • participate in migrant work experience programs, such as the Work and Welcome program.

The department’s annual report (PDF icon 189 KB) outlines activities undertaken in the department since December 2016 to deliver on these actions.
