Significant issues impacting the Commissioner for Equal Opportunity

Current and emerging issues and trends

  • There has been a significant decrease in demand for fee for service education and training over the past 12 months.  The Commission is reviewing its education programs to consider alternative models including train the trainer approaches, online training modules and further developing partnerships in response to identified trends in complaints and areas of discrimination.
  • Decrease in fee for service training has allowed greater capacity to undertake rights based training to a broader range of the community.
  • Traffic on the Equal Opportunity Commission’s website has increased almost two-fold over the past five years. The Commission will expand and enhance its online information and develop social media strategies to increase its outreach across the state.
  • The Commission underwent a restructure in the second half of 2015-16, resulting in a reduction of staff from 25 to 20, and business units from 5 to 3.
