I believe Australia is the world’s best example of multicultural pluralism.

A country built by migrants from different continents, who together have fostered, with hard work and relentless energy, a society that accepts and prospers.

I believe in an Australia that is at its best when embracing change and innovation. I believe that public service is the ultimate calling, requiring equal parts of energy and empathy.

Over many years I have worked with community groups and government to shape policy understanding and approaches in many sensitive areas – including multicultural community relationships and international education.
