Welcome to 2017 and the year ahead for the ADC


The ADC hopes everyone had a relaxing break and is back and ready to do what they can to promote equality of opportunity for all Territorians in 2017. The Commissioner has started the year with a catch up with the Alice Springs community.

In the year ahead we will look for opportunities to work with the community to raise awareness of rights and obligations under the Anti-Discrimination Act. As well as opportunities to work with Aboriginal organisations and continue strong relationships with Multicultural communities in both Darwin and Alice Springs. We will also continue to raise awareness in the community about the work of the Commission.

It is a year of great opportunities as NDIS is rolled out across the NT. We look forward to working with people with lived experience of disability. In particular those who are living with mental illness and are in employment or who are returning to the work place. As well as assisting employers understand their obligations when working with employees returning to the work place.

Areas of work will include promoting gender equity in the community and in particular in the work place as a primary prevention tool against domestic and family violence.

ADC has planned out our scheduled training program for the year including unconscious bias workshops. Staff are also available to conduct information sessions. We look forward to seeing you in these sessions and to working with you in the community.

If you have a query about whether conduct falls under the terms of the Act or a question as an employer, do not hesitate to call us on 08 8999 1444 or email at antidiscrimination@nt.gov.au. Otherwise see you on Facebook or Twitter.
