In 2020, HealthWest approached Multicultural Centre for Women’s Health (MCWH) along with Centre for Multicultural Youth (CMY), to work together on the Community Conversations project, to better understand and address economic inclusion, in the context of race-based discrimination and social inclusion.
We asked twenty young people and women from migrant and refugee backgrounds in Melbourne’s west about their experiences of finding work in Australia. Thanks to everyone who spoke with us! You can read some of the responses in the Report Highlights.
