MCWH recently had the opportunity to make a submission to the Multicultural Framework Review. Our submission is framed in direct response to the Multicultural Framework Review’s Terms of Reference and is based on our work with migrant and refugee women in advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights; improving mental health and wellbeing; preventing violence against women and children; enhancing workplace health and wellbeing; and supporting COVID-19 recovery
Our submission lays out key recommendations on improving the lives of migrant and refugee women in the areas of:
- Emergency disaster preparedness and response;
- Social security;
- Workforce participation;
- The effectiveness of current federal diversity, equity and inclusion strategies; and,
- Strategic communication by the federal government in languages other than English.
