The Commissioner and the staff of the Equal Opportunity Commission work tirelessly to address discrimination, sexual harassment and victimisation in the South Australian community. We do this by conciliating complaints of discrimination according to the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA), and assisting South Australian organisations to ensure that our workplaces, clubs and associations, educational institutions and goods and service providers are inclusive, and provide appropriate services and opportunities for a broad range of South Australians.
Importantly, we also focus on the proactive prevention of discrimination, sexual harassment and victimisation. We do this by engaging with the community to raise awareness and understanding of their rights and responsibilities under equal opportunity laws. We also partner with South Australian industry leaders, academic institutions, businesses and government agencies to promote a culture which respects and values people regardless of their identity or their personal circumstances.
