Geelong Ethnic Communities Council, trading as Diversitat

Diversitat is governed by the Geelong Ethnic Communities Council Executive Committee which contributes to and directs the vision, values and general policies of the organisation.
The Executive Committee is guided by a general Council which comprises up to two representatives from each of the 51 cultural communities affiliated with Diversitat.

Our Mission

Building on our proud history of migrant services, Diversitat aspires to provide an innovative and high quality response to the changing needs of a culturally diverse community.

Our Vision

To empower individuals and communities to reach their full potential.

Our Values

Dignity, respect and acceptance are basic values defining our humanity and must be afforded to every individual in our society. We value an ecologically sustainable environment and promote and celebrate harmony, cultural diversity, peace and social justice in our society.

Our Logo

The “D” is representative of Diversity and the symbol can also be seen as 2 people embracing. The blue and green are our traditional colours, representing the world of sea and land. Diversitat is Catalan for Diversity and is similar in many other European languages, which points to our organisations past but embraces a more diverse future.
