UPDATE: At the 2 March 2021 Operations and Community Services Committee meeting, Councillors appointed representatives to the Multicultural Advisory Committee. Please click here to read the report (from pg. 11) and click here to read the minutes (pg. 3).

We are seeking applications from community members who live, work or study in the Waverley Local Government Area and organisations who are interested in participating in our Multicultural Advisory Committee (MAC).

The MAC meets four times per year. We encourage applications from the following groups:

  • Young people
  • Community representatives
  • Representatives of local services, regional agencies or peak bodies working with people from culturally diverse backgrounds
  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander people

Please note that Waverley will also separately seek expressions of interest later this year to create an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Committee.

Background

Waverley is home to people from all parts of the world, with almost 40% of residents being born overseas and 21% speaking a language other than English. Waverley Council values this diversity and is committed to building a community which is resilient and inclusive. To support this, Council has a Multicultural Advisory Committee (MAC) which provides a forum for people to;

  • Find out what’s happening in the Waverley community in regard to diverse communities
  • Tackle broad local issues
  • Help improve Council’s access and inclusion strategies
  • Participate in activities and events that promote community harmony and social cohesion
  • Develop networks and community partnerships

How to apply

Alternatively, we will accept submissions via the below methods. Click here to view the expression of interest form.

Submissions will close 11.59pm, Monday 8 February 2021.
