Our eyes and ears across Victoria
The VMC is advised by 8 Regional Advisory Councils (RACs), which cover the whole state.
RAC Members are the Victorian Multicultural Commission’s eyes and ears, keeping Commissioners informed about the issues that matter to multicultural communities.
They provide us with critical, on-the-ground insights into issues such as migrant and refugee settlement services, employment, education, housing, citizenship and connection to culture. They also help identify potential solutions and strategies for achieving change.
These insights and ideas then help us to influence and shape policy, legislation and to improve government and community services.
The RACs are also a useful forum for other organisations and government bodies to engage with local multicultural communities.
Our members reflect Victoria's diversity
RAC members are selected through a public expression-of-interest process.
Currently, members represent 36 different cultural backgrounds and include community members, service providers, local business owners and local government representatives.
