VMC welcomes Chin-Leong Tan as Race Discrimination Commissioner

25 October 2018

On behalf of the Victorian Multicultural Commission, I would like to congratulate former VMC Chairperson, Mr. Chin-Leong Tan, who is appointed to the position of Race Discrimination Commissioner with the Australian Human Rights Commission. 

I have every confidence that Mr. Tan will be a committed champion of diversity, helping to protect and preserve our precious multicultural society, and foster community harmony. 

Mr. Tan’s previous positions including at the Commission, and with the Victorian Government, Swinburne University, and the Australian Football League, together with his personal experience as a migrant to Australia, make him an ideal candidate to effectively respond to issues that impact culturally and linguistically diverse communities.

Our congratulations go to Mr Tan and we look forward to continuing our strong partnership with the Australian Human Rights Commission in our joint pursuit of equal outcomes for all Australians.
