It is a pleasure to welcome you to the inaugural National Multicultural Women’s Conference 2016 – Influencing change: Vision and Impact, to be held at the Parkroyal Parramatta, Sydney, from 3-4 November 2016.

This national event is an outcome of an innovative partnership between Settlement Services International (SSI) and the Federation of Ethnic Communities’ Councils of Australia (FECCA), with support from Ethnic Communities’ Council of NSW, that will provide a holistic perspective towards shaping a shared vision and driving change.

Our vision is to create a collaborative, inclusive and engaging platform to share knowledge, inform the national agenda, and recognise and celebrate the outstanding contribution women from diverse backgrounds make to our society.

Join practitioners, decision makers, community members and thought leaders, and participate in what will be a lively and productive national dialogue.
