South Australians are invited to provide feedback on a new Multicultural Charter for the state.

Development of a Multicultural Charter is a key action from the South Australian Multicultural Act 2021 which came into operation on 2 December 2021.

A draft Multicultural Charter has been developed in consultation with a working group that includes South Australian Multicultural Commission members along with representatives from leading multicultural organisations, universities, government and the community.

The Multicultural Charter contains principles that will guide policy development and help inform service delivery across the state.

Once complete, the Multicultural Charter will help organisations promote understanding and respect through increased cultural awareness and implementing diversity and inclusion strategies.

We want to hear your feedback on the draft. Your voice and input will help inform and finalise the first South Australian Multicultural Charter.

Consultation is being conducted through in-person and online forums and an online survey through YourSAy. Written submissions can also be made by post or email.

Consultation is open until 30 November, with forums to be held throughout November.

Members of the South Australian Multicultural Commission, the leading advisory body on multicultural affairs, will lead the in-person and online consultations, with the support of Multicultural Affairs, Department of the Premier and Cabinet.
