Multicultural Access and Equity Plan

Publication date

The Attorney-General's Department is committed to understanding Australia's culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) population to ensure we appropriately reflect the needs of these communities in our work.

We are all responsible for considering multicultural access, equity and inclusion when developing and delivering policy, programmes and services – both internally and externally.

The department's Multicultural Access and Equity Plan (MAEP) provides a framework to support our commitment to multicultural access and inclusion in the way we work and in the outcomes we deliver, specifically for people of CALD backgrounds.
