Have your say on building a fair and equal society for women and men in Australia.
The Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC), in partnership with the Hawke Centre, the Equal Opportunity Commission of South Australia and Safe Work SA invite you join HREOC's new Sex Discrimination Commissioner and Commissioner responsible for Age Discrimination, Elizabeth Broderick, for a community consultation.
This consultation is part of Commissioner Broderick's national Listening Tour. The Listening Tour is an opportunity for people all over Australia to make their voices heard on the issues that matter to them.
Come along and have your say on the three themes of the tour:
- economic independence for women
- work and family balance across the life cycle
- freedom from discrimination, harassment and violence
Discussion of other issues will also be welcome. Information collected from this consultation will be used to inform the agenda for the Commissioner's 5 year term.
Can't make it to the consultation? An interactive website is currently being constructed which will allow online contributions.
More information about how to contribute to the Listening Tour will be posted at www.humanrights.gov.au in coming weeks, along with details of other events as the HREOC team make their way around the country.

While the views presented by speakers within the Hawke Centre public program are their own and are not necessarily those of either the University of South Australia or The Hawke Centre, they are presented in the interest of open debate and discussion in the community and reflect our themes of: strengthening our democracy – valuing our cultural diversity – and building our future
