The Ethnic Communities’ Council of Victoria Inc. (ECCV) is the voice of multicultural Victoria and the peak advocacy body for eight regional ethnic community councils and 240 member organisations including ethnic and multicultural organisations across Victoria. For over 40 years, we have been the link between multicultural communities, government and the wider community.
ECCV has a strong history in advocating for the rights of multicultural communities, informing industry practice and influencing government on a range of issues including health, workforce participation, equitable access and social cohesion.
This submission builds on previous activities conducted by ECCV including submissions to the Victorian Government's Royal Commission into Family Violence Report and ECCV’s Submission to the Victorian Gender Equality Strategy. ECCV is pleased to provide this submission towards the development of the Victorian Government’s Gender Equality Bill (Bill).
