MAKING Integration work

The Harvard Club of Victoria cordially invites you to a lunch presentation on Friday the 8th of June featuring the Hon Alan Tudge MP, Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs.

We are all beneficiaries of the significant contribution of successive waves of migrants. It has built modern Australia. Our multicultural achievement is different to multiculturalism in other nations, our success has been based largely in integration. In Alan's view, to ensure this ongoing success, we need to increase our efforts and place high expectations upon new arrivals, emphasising the fact that with rights comes responsibilities. 

About the Speaker
Alan Tudge was elected to the Federal Parliament in the seat of Aston in Melbourne's outer east in 2010 and again in 2013. He has served as Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister, Assistant Minister to Prime Minister Turnbull and Assistant Minister for Social Services. In 2016 he was appointed Minister for Human Services. On 20 December 2017, he was sworn in as Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs.

Prior to entering parliament, Alan spent several years with the Boston Consulting Group in Australia, Malaysia and New York, and running his own advisory business. He was also Senior Adviser to former Education Minister Brendan Nelson and Foreign Minister Alexander Downer. He spent several years as the Deputy Director of Noel Pearson's Cape York Institute where he oversaw the development of a large welfare reform agenda which included the introduction of conditional welfare payments and a sharper focus on home ownership and improved education.

Alan is a co-founder of Teach for Australia, a national non-profit which targets top graduates from non-teacher faculties and fast-tracks them into teaching in disadvantaged schools. He is actively involved in his local community and is a proud supporter and sponsor of numerous sporting clubs and non-profits.
