The Cultural Diversity Strategy 2013 – 2016 is a whole of Council document, and seeks to build and strengthen an organisational culture that embraces the principles of multiculturalism in Logan City, including:
- Embracing our shared values and cultural traditions as well as a shared commitment to Australia and developing one's potential for the country's economic and social benefit;
- Allowing those who choose to call Logan City their home the right to practise and share their cultural traditions and languages within the law and free from discrimination;
- Acknowledging that government services and programs must be responsive to the needs of our culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities; and
- A commitment to providing equitable access to services provided or funded by Council.
Developed in consultation with the community, the Cultural Diversity Strategy 2013-2016, together with Council's Cultural Diversity Policy, provides a framework for Council's approach to multiculturalism. It supersedes the 2007 Cultural Diversity Strategy, builds upon the achievements of past and ongoing initiatives and incorporates existing and future plans and activities across all branches of Council.
