Pallavi Sinha, a migrant lawyer, migration law lecturer at the Australian National University and an accredited mediator and counsellor is actively involved with the Indian subcontinent community for over two decades now.

Although she is born and brought up in Australia, but her Indian background has much impact on her and that is the reason she has a soft corner for the community. She has been actively involved with the Indian subcontinent community and broader ethnic community for over 20 years.
Recently Pallavi Sinha was the only individual shortlisted as a Finalist in the category Diversity & the Law at the Australian Migration & Settlement Awards in 2014.

She is actively involved in the community raising awareness of the law and social justice issues in roles such as a People of Australia Ambassador, the only person from NSW elected to the Federation of Ethnic Communities Council and the youngest person appointed to the Indian Ministerial Consultative Committee.
