Community education

The training team at Equal Opportunity Tasmania liaises and works co-operatively with not-for-profit community organisations, community groups, schools, colleges, other educational institutions, unions and interested individuals to provide a range of FREE training and information sessions.

Community information sessions, workshops and engagement forums aim to promote non-discriminatory practices and empower those groups who are most likely to experience discrimination, harassment and bullying.

Sessions can be designed to focus on a range of human rights issues such as those affecting:

  • people with disabilities,
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people,
  • ethnic and religious minority groups,
  • gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgender and intersex communities,
  • young people,
  • seniors,
  • women & men.

Equal Opportunity Tasmania has customised training programs available for community organisations and, wherever possible, consideration will be given to provide a fee reduction subject to the nature, size and capacity of the organisation to pay for training.
