Interculturalism is the practice of building meaningful relationships between individuals, families and communities from different cultural, language and faith backgrounds. Intercultural societies are resilient societies which take full social, political and economic advantage of their diversity.

Benchmark your Council against 130+ other Councils around the world by contacting Lynda Ford 0414 440 483.

Mentors don’t want to be owned, they want to mentor.

YourMentor is a program that matches successful business people as mentors with startups in conjunction with Accelerators, Incubators and other organisations. 

We recruit and process mentors for your organisation.
