Anti-Discrimination Commission

What is the Anti-Discrimination Commission?

The Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission promotes equal opportunity for all Territorians. Established in 1993, we aim to eliminate discrimination from happening by raising awareness about individual’s rights and responsibilities under the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Act.

The Anti-Discrimination Commission has three main roles: Public education and training, handling complaints and community engagement.

More about the Anti-Discrimination Commission

If you have been unlawfully discriminated against, you can lodge a complaint under the Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Act. But it’s important to know your rights and responsibilities before making a complaint.

8 March 2018 – International Women’s Day

There will be events held all around the Territory for the 2018 International Women’s Day. In Darwin there will be the International Women’s Day March in Darwin City on Saturday 10 March 2018.  The March will leave State Square at 9.30am and conclude at Parliament House where there will be further celebrations and entertainment.  

The theme set down by the UN Women National Committee Australia is “Leave No Woman Behind” examining the vital role that women play in humanitarian and disaster planning and response.  It also examines the impacts that disasters have on women and girls and highlights the important roles that women play in risk reduction, rebuilding, rehabilitation and peace processes. 

Another theme you might see crop up is #PressforProgress, a call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.  This is a strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.
