When Professor Gillian Triggs took up the role of President of the Australian Human Rights Commission in 2012, she never anticipated was that she would become one of the most controversial and polarising statutory office-holders in Australia's history. In conversation with Dr Niki Vincent, Professor Triggs will explore the human rights issues at the forefront during her term, as well as the ‘highs’ and ‘lows’, the ‘lessons learned’ and her reflections on the gendered nature of public shaming from this time in her leadership career..
