Preserving the history of Indian arrival


Manpreet Singh

Although Manpreet Singh is best known as an SBS radio broadcaster in Australia, her work across all platforms of journalism — newspapers, radio, magazines, television and online – have earned her widespread respect and recognition in Australia and beyond.

She has made a significant contribution in areas of social justice, cultural cohesion and multiculturalism, and has provided a strong platform for informed public debate on topical matters. Her work is not only helping to preserve the history of Indian arrival into Australia, but is aiding more recent Indian arrivals build their identity as Australian Indians.

Many of her written articles have been published in newspapers, magazines and websites of international repute.

Over the last 10 years, her work has been chosen as a finalist at the UN Media Peace Awards on four separate occasions, in categories like promotion of multicultural issues, increasing awareness of women’s rights and issues, and promotion of positive images of the older person. She is the only multicultural media journalist in Australia to achieve this.

In January 2013, along the sidelines of the Pravasi Bhartiya Diwas in Kochi, she was one of 11 people chosen from around the world, to receive the GOPIO Community Service Award, from the Global organization of People of Indian Origin.
