Leading Multicultural Support

Introducing TMC's Gold Coast Women's Collective

Thriving Multicultural Communities (TMC) is honored to spearhead the Multicultural Support Initiative, a pivotal program for the next few years, designed to enhance the social and economic inclusion of the CALD community across South-East Queensland.

Project Coordinator Ella

Team member Ella holds a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Behavioural Sciences as well as a Post Graduate Diploma in Family Dispute Resolution and is registered under the Attorney Generals Department as a FDRP (also known as a family mediator). Ella coordinates a range of meaningful and stimulating activities that help women from CALD background in building social capacity.  

Gold Coast Women’s Collective has successfully staged spectacular events including International Women’s Day, Women’s Mental Health and general Health and Wellness Expo. 

GCWC has also hosted a range of various weekly programs that brought women together through food, exercise, arts and music. Some of the weekly events were yoga, zumba and art expression. 

We are pleased to know that many women have benefited from our program through social interaction and developing new-found hobbies. Great outcomes have been recorded based on participant surveys and individual feedback.
