Leanne Smith, Whitlam Institute Director

"Australia has changed much since the time my grandparents migrated and our country has been incredibly enriched by the multiculturalism and tolerance we enjoy today. I am grateful to be able to celebrate my culture and heritage and to learn from those of my friends and colleagues. But history shows us that we can never take these things for granted. And that’s why I am personally so honoured to have Tim make his final speech here tonight."  (6 August 2018)
