Please find our submission titled “Inclusion of Pacific Women and their Families in the Multicultural Framework of Australia.” This document has been prepared by Loau Donina Va’a, Chair of the Pacific Women’s Professional Business Network Inc.

Our submission underscores the vital importance of acknowledging and addressing the unique challenges and invaluable contributions of Pacific women in the rich tapestry of Australian multiculturalism.

The inclusion of Pacific women within the multicultural mosaic of Australia is not merely a moral obligation; it presents an exceptional occasion to elevate the Australian community as a whole. With the combined efforts of governmental bodies, non-governmental organizations, and the empathetic embrace of our fellow citizens, we can ensure the holistic integration of Pacific women and their families. By nurturing an environment of understanding, respect, and support, we can empower these women to thrive, contributing their rich perspectives and talents to the broader social discourse.

We look forward to the outcomes of the Multicultural Framework Review and remain committed to playing an active role in nurturing a diverse and inclusive Australia.
