    Queensland Multicultural Action Plan Annual Report 2018–19 — Department of the Premier and Cabinet

    The Department of the Premier and Cabinet (DPC), is dedicated to actively growing and supporting a culturally diverse community that is both united and harmonious, as well as building organisational cultural competency.

    Queensland Government agencies with actions in the Queensland Multicultural Policy and Queensland Multicultural Action Plan 2016–17 to 2018–19 are required to publish an annual report detailing action for the previous year. This annual report focuses on action undertaken in 2018–19 by DPC and the Public Service Commission aligned to three priority areas:

    • Priority 1: Culturally responsive government.
    • Priority 2: Inclusive, harmonious and united communities.
    • Priority 3: Economic opportunities.

    Harmony Day Reception

    On 26 March 2019, more than 300 Queenslanders from multi-faith communities gathered to show that #EveryoneBelongs at the Premier’s Harmony Day Reception.

    Harmony Day—which celebrates our diversity—presented a fitting opportunity to honour the victims of the tragic events in Christchurch on 15 March 2019 and show that ‘Queensland Stands Together’ with all communities.

    During the reception, the Premier presented a condolence book to Hon. Dame Annette King, New Zealand High Commissioner to Australia. This book included many messages of support Queenslanders wrote to honour and uplift our New Zealand neighbours.
