Hear directly from diverse communities

We are thrilled to announce that Ethnolink's Head of Community Engagement, Shereen Ghali, will be hosting an engaging Community Panel. This unique session will convene three local community members, each bringing their distinct cultural and linguistic backgrounds to the discussion. They will share their invaluable perspectives, shedding light on their unique experiences within their respective communities. It's a rare chance to gain insights directly from Sydney and Canberra's diverse community.

I thoroughly enjoyed the wide and diverse range of topics that were discussed and presented this morning. Hearing first hand case studies and experiences was fascinating!
