MDA is an independent non-government organisation (NGO) committed to delivering a welcoming Queensland where all new arrivals have the opportunity to contribute and participate in a multicultural society. Diversity is our strength.

We create positive change by leveraging our cross-cultural expertise, experience and innovation to drive understanding and behaviour.

MDA’s aim is for a stronger state that reaps the benefits of our established cultural diversity, and that of the 36,000 people who arrive from overseas to make Queensland home each year as skilled migrants, international students and refugees.

Our work transforms lives, businesses, communities and economies. By building connections and sharing opportunities, we build enriched futures and sustainable social change.
