Equal Opportunities Committee


About The Committee

The Equal Opportunities Committee considers matters of discrimination relative to sex or marital status, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, language, social origin or other personal attributes, including beliefs or opinions on, for example, religion or politics. The Committee meets on Thursday mornings; tickets to observe meetings can be requested from Visitor Services.

Over the next few weeks we'll be meeting informally with organisations and businesses to discuss our race, ethnicity and employment inquiry. We'll update our webpage with formal meeting details after October recess.
