The Multicultural Council of Tasmania (MCOT) is the peak body in Tasmania representing Tasmanians from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) background including refugees, international students and international migrant people.
MCOT’s role is to advocate, lobby and promote issues on behalf of members, community cultural organizations from a CALD background to government, business and the broader community.
With tickets sold out a week before the event, hopes were high for the launch of MCOT’s first annual Multicultural Tasmania Employer Conference on Thursday 7 July at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Using the theme “Diversity is good for business”, the event started with a keynote speech from Tasmanian Premier The Hon. Jeremy Rockliff and featured further guest speakers from Blueline Laundry, UTAS, Downer Group, Glenorchy Jobs Hub, Searson Buck, Jobs Tasmania and many others.
Blueline Laundry was recognised for their contribution and efforts in helping skilled employees find roles that suit their experience with the first annual MCOT award for talent diversity being presented to CEO Michael Sylvester.
