Supporting diversity

Diversity is used to describe variation between people in terms of their gender identity, ability, age, physical characteristics, culture, religion or spirituality, migrant or refugee background, language, values, sexual orientation, education, socio-economic background and/or life experiences.

There are many ways that Victorian councils are working towards creating inclusive communities that support, nurture and celebrate the diversity of their communities.

Victorian councils may have strategic plans or strategies guiding decision making and policies to ensure all local residents are reflected in their community.
