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.

Visit to the NT – Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins

The Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins has recently visited Darwin to discuss her priorities for the next 5 years. She visited the ADC office to consult staff about working towards gender equality and during her trip attended other events organised by the Women Engineers, NT Working Women’s Centre and Aboriginal Peaks. Kate also attended the Tiwi Bombers Youth Girls AFL Team training.

Check out our Facebook or Twitter pages for some great photos of Kate’s trip. We look forward seeing Kate and her team in the Territory next year and working with her in the future.
