This event is part of the public consultation phase of the Queensland Human Rights Commission’s Review of the Anti-Discrimination Act.

About this event

This community conversation is being held as part of the public consultation phase of the Queensland Human Rights Commission’s Review of the Anti-Discrimination Act.

It is open to the whole community, and everyone is welcome to attend. The Anti-Discrimination Act and its protections impact on many parts of public life, from work to school to buying your groceries, so whether you are a representative of your local community group, a small business owner or employer, a member of a faith congregation, part of a sporting team, or someone with an experience of discrimination or harassment, we want to hear from you.

Attending a community conversation will give you the chance to come together with other people in your area, learn a bit about the Act, share your experiences, and discuss options for improving the law so it protects and promotes equality for everyone, to the greatest extent possible.

Registration is essential. If you need an interpreter (including Auslan), please send us an email at adareview@qhrc.qld.gov.au.

About the Review:

The Review of the Anti-Discrimination Act is being conducted by the Queensland Human Rights Commission, at the request of the Attorney-General.

The Review is looking at whether our anti-discrimination law protects and promotes equality and non-discrimination to the greatest extent possible. Some of the things it will examine include whether the law:

  • needs improving so it better responds to people who have experienced discrimination
  • should have a role in identifying and eliminating systemic causes of discrimination, sexual harassment, and victimisation
  • should require organisations and workplaces to eliminate discrimination, sexual harassment, and victimisation.

More information about the Review, what it will examine, and how it is being conducted, is available on the Queensland Human Rights Commission website at www.qhrc.qld.gov.au/law-reform.
