About

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 Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commissioner is Sally Sievers.

The Commission has three main roles:

  1. Public education and training
    We provide public education and training through a set program as well as tailored training to organisations and individuals.

  2. Handling complaints
    We provide information about your rights and responsibilities under anti-discrimination law. We also accept, investigate and help resolve complaints of discrimination.

  3. Community engagement
    We attend public forums, meetings and organisations to hear and share information about rights and responsibilities under the Act.
