Bring Welcome to Your Workplace

Thanks to the Yarra Trams Community Partnerships Program, the ASRC now has a tram wrap displayed on the tram #3033 that will be rolling on the streets of Melbourne from June to September 2023. The tram wrap invites you to Welcome Refugees into the Workforce and the campaign calls upon the community to become more hospitable and conscious about the challenges refugees face when joining the workforce.

The stories you’ll find champion the journey of refugees to Australia seeking safety, bringing a lifetime of skills, education and work experience. It also sheds light on the barriers many refugees face to finding work: unfamiliar application processes, employers’ inexperience handling protection visas, language challenges, lack of local experience or contacts, employer bias or simply not having their overseas qualifications or work experience recognised in this country.

Now you can pledge your name to welcome refugees to the Australian workforce. Submit your pledge and you’ll also receive a pack of FREE resources filled with tips and information about multicultural workplaces, refugee experiences and how to welcome them to your business or organisation.

The ASRC would like to acknowledge the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation as traditional owners and custodians of the land on which the ASRC stands. We acknowledge that the land was never ceded and we pay our respect to them, their customs, their culture, to elders past and present and to their emerging leaders.

This landing page is part of the campaign ‘Welcome Refugees into the Workforce’; an awareness campaign created as part of a partnership between ASRC and Yarra Trams which provides free tram wraps to community organisations making a positive impact on diversity and inclusion in Melbourne. The ASRC’s WELCOME tram wrap will feature on a wrapped tram that will travel on tram routes 48 and 109 in Melbourne from June to September 2023.
