The Promise of Diversity


By John Hartwell Williams and John Bond

This Biography is of Professor Jerzy Zubrycki (1920-2009). Described as the ‘father of Australian multiculturalism’ he was influential to developing policies appropriate to the country’s ethnic diversity.

The Promise of Diversity depicts the story of a man who believed passionately that everyone had a contribution to make to their society, that immigrants were an asset whose potential was being ignored, and that good policies could realise this potential.
