Brian Cook, Chief Executive, Geelong Football Club

The Geelong Football Club is proud to work with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC). Right from the start, VEOHRC tailored their best practice approach to suit our needs. With their ability and expertise to engage with our staff, executive team and Board, we now have critical data and insights enabling us to build our knowledge and capability in providing a healthy, welcoming and inclusive environment. We look forward to continuing this journey with VEOHRC and the development of our first Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan.

Bojana Zabic, Organisational Development Adviser, WorkSafe

The VEOHRC team were a delight to partner with, they are professional, engaging and delivered an evidence-based services, tailor fit for our purpose.

Carmela C Guglielmino, Assistant Principal, Willmott Park Primary School

The project [with the Commission] gave us further clarity about why it is so important to focus on respect, dignity and inclusion, and helped us to get our staff on board. We now have more help from staff in our wellbeing initiatives, and day to day work, because they have an understanding of how all of this work promotes a safe learning environment, and why we need to think about the unique circumstances of every single student.

Suzi Hayes, Senior Advisor, Diversity and Inclusion, Yarra City Council

The face-to-face education and online tools created a safe space for people to have conversations about difficult matters and, in that space, we were really able to bridge the divide between intent and impact.


Education programs

We work with organisations to identify education needs of staff to achieve compliance and best practice in relation to all of our laws.

Scheduled courses

We provide human rights and equality courses which we deliver face-to-face or live online, to offer individuals or small teams an opportunity to deepen their understanding of human rights and equal opportunity issues.

In these programs, participants will develop knowledge and skills to take back to the workplace. We challenge participants using realistic scenarios, current cases and best practice examples.

Our courses are a valuable opportunity to not only learn from content experts but also work with other organisations, share practices and develop useful networks.

In workplaces

We can also provide education programs for contact officers in workplaces with six or more contact officers.

Contact officer course

This course equips new Contact Officers with fundamental knowledge and skills to be a first point of contact in the workplace to provide confidential and impartial information to help their colleagues resolve workplace issues of unlawful discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying or victimisation. This program is ideally suited to new Contact Officers.
