LABOR CANDIDATE FOR SWAN
An Albanese Labor Government will deliver $30,000 to Hillview Intercultural Community Centre to help deliver networking events and activities for local employers and migrant job seekers.
The commitment, announced today by Labor candidate for Swan Zaneta Mascarenhas and Shadow Minister for Multicultural Affairs, Andrew Giles, will support the organisation in helping migrants and refugees find professional development opportunities and secure employment.
The events and activities will form part of the City of Canning’s plan to develop Hillview as Southern Hub for the Kaleidoscope Initiative and will assist employers in enhancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
This is part of Labor’s plan to deliver the support that our local communities need and deserve.

“Zaneta Mascarenhas is a fantastic local candidate who will be a strong voice for her community.
“The team that Anthony Albanese leads has been listening to community voices to ensure that migrant Australians emerge strong from the pandemic. Providing better opportunities for migrant Australians to gain employment is all part of our plan for a better future for multicultural Australians.”

“The Hillview Intercultural Community Centre is an important part of my electorate and I am very happy to support them in their work in securing employment for multicultural communities and increasing workplace diversity.
“Only an Albanese Labor Government will ensure our local communities get the support they need.
“I’m proud to have secured this commitment to deliver for an amazing local organisation.”
