The time has come to embrace the growing diversity of the Australian population and embrace our diverse culture.
For a number of reasons, Australia’s population has changed in the past couple of decades, and the time has been right for an Australian-led push to make sure we are a more diverse and inclusive society.
“As Australians, we need to recognise that our country has a much wider diversity than it has been for a very long time.
We have a long way to go, but we are making significant strides,” Australian Human Rights Commission chief executive Gillian Triggs said.
We have a number social, cultural and economic changes in the last couple of years that have really contributed to that.
“The last 10 years have seen an increase in the number of women of colour in the workforce and in terms of the gender pay gap.
That’s a problem that needs to be addressed, we have to address it in a way that’s inclusive and sensitive to all Australians, whether they are working in the service industry, in childcare, in retail, in the construction industry, and so on,” Triggs told news.com,au.
It’s a complex issue that has to be dealt with in the long term, but right now, we are just at the beginning of this process of trying to create a more inclusive society for all Australians.
“We know that the number one thing that people want to do is have a safe and healthy environment.
It is a challenging problem to tackle, but it is a very important challenge, and we will be able to get there.
