Continuing the round of community consultations, the new leadership team at the Community Relations Commission, the Chair, Vic Alhadeff and Chief Executive Officer, Hakan Harman, met with a broad cross section of the Indian community of New South Wales.

Speaking on the occasion Alhadeff said, “Indian immigrants have a strong influence in New South Wales and are one of the most qualified body of Australians within our society”.

“The potential of such a strong body of professionals is an asset to our state in the spirit of the Principles of Multiculturalism as enshrined in our legislation”, he said.

Harman explained the current review process under way within the Commission and called for input from the Indian community.

In answer to a question about the Commission’s engagement with the private sector, Harman reported on steps already undertaken to join and to work with the Diversity Council of Australia so as to bring to bear on the business world the expertise already developed for the public sector in New South Wales.

“The NSW Public Service embraces their responsibility to tailor their services to the needs of a culturally diverse society and to communicate the availability of those services appropriately.”

The need for youth to play a more prominent role in community organisations to ensure continuity of representation was also raised. This has been a continuing theme of community consultations taken so far by the new leadership of the Commission.

Harman told that the Commission would roll out a comprehensive social media strategy within the next few months to boost its engagement and communication with young people.
