Awarded for service to multicultural affairs
Entered on roll: 2019
As a woman from Pakistan, a country facing many challenges, Hina Durrani decided to take a bold step by coming to Australia and succeeded in countering the myths associated with gender roles.
A professional accountant with two Master’s degrees (Accounting and Public Administration) and a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Hina believes in economic empowerment for women, supporting resilience, adapting to change, being comfortable with vulnerability and a drive to push boundaries.
Youth leadership, employment, women’s empowerment, quality education, inclusive societies, countering racism and promoting multiculturalism have been Hina’s focus.
Through her initiatives, Hina has mobilised culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) youth in Tasmania to build a constructive sense of harmony and self-respect, so that young people from marginalised backgrounds do not get radicalised or into any negative activities.
She has removed a lot of stereotyping against CALD individuals, and the events she has organised have been attended by politicians, dignitaries, students, staff, business owners and community members. These have helped to build connections and have created leadership, employment and volunteering opportunities.
Hina won The Mercury Pride of Australia Award 2016; the Volunteering Tasmania MyState Education, Science and Technology Award 2017; the Tasmanian Human Rights Award for Multiculturalism 2017; the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards – "People's Choice Award" 2017; the Tasmanian Community Achievement Awards – "Outstanding Achiever Award"2017; and she was the Regional Finalist (Tasmania) Australian Leadership Excellence Awards 2017 (Institute of Managers and Leaders).
