Victorian. And proud of it. is Victoria's new Multicultural Policy Statement.
Victoria is renowned for its multiculturalism. It's a place where people from all over the world have come together to make their home. But we can't take our social cohesion for granted - we must continue our effors to ensure that every Victorian can contribute and belong.
This new policy statement sets out the Victorian Government's way forward with a range of policies, programs and services that encourage every one of us to participate in a stronger, safer and more harmonious community.
The policy is underpinned by the Victorian Values Statement, a set of shared values that the Victorian Government expects everyone to learn, respect and accept – and that Victorians should expect of each other.
They are the values that every Victorian needs to accept and live by to ensure we remain one of the world’s most cohesive, multicultural societies.
Across our state, every day, Victorians from all walks of life are living out our shared values. Victorian. And proud of it. celebrates real-life examples of contribution and belonging, as told by real Victorians.
