Queensland’s Minister for Employment and Small Business will address a Small Business and Social Enterprise Forum presented by the COVID-19 Working Group, Community Leaders, QPASTT and Multicultural Australia this Wednesday evening.

The online Forum aims to discuss initiatives to address the needs of small businesses and social enterprises owned and/or run by Queenslanders from refugee and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

In particular, Forum participants will discuss the challenges and opportunities for business and social enterprise in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Hon. Shannon Fentiman, MP, Minister for Employment and Small Business will address the Forum about the Queensland economic outlook more broadly, and the Government plans for creating job opportunities and supporting social enterprises and social benefit businesses.

There will also be information from Federal Government representatives about changes in Jobkeeper and from universities and organisations working in social enterprise and social procurement.

Our cultural Community Leaders and local entrepreneurs will also be sharing their experiences of both their start up stories and their experiences through COVID 19.

Please join us for the forum and let us know if you would like to pose a question to the speakers by emailing AmeliaS@multiculturalaustralia.org.au
