Our Strategic Plan 2021-25

Our Strategic Plan 2021-25 sets out our approach to building an inclusive, connected and socially cohesive multicultural NSW.

The plan brings the Multicultural Principles to life in our culturally, religiously and linguistically diverse context. It helps us to understand the strengths and challenges of living together in a complex multicultural society and supports us in collaboratively delivering outcomes that benefit us all.

The work we do touches everyone in NSW. This strategy steers the way into a future where we can all work together to celebrate our diversity and who we are as individuals. It focuses on what needs doing to shift stereotypes and to connect, so we are stronger together.
