Fair and inclusive workplaces

Human Rights Month is a campaign of the Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland that runs from 10 November to 10 December and culminates on International Human Rights Day (10 December). ADCQ is proud to introduce our 2016 campaign partner, Mental Illness Fellowship Queensland (MIFQ).

The enduring campaign theme is Fair and inclusive workplaces , with this year's campaign focusing on two key topics: mentally healthy workplaces and flexibility at work. ADCQ and MIFQ have developed a range of resources based on the key topics to promote awareness and discussion in the workplace.

Workplace champions

Workplaces of all sizes and types are encouraged to participate in the campaign and nominate workplace champions to co-ordinate the dissemination of information in their workplaces. There is a workplace champion's guide for each key topic to help get the ball rolling. All workplace champions will receive updates leading up to, and throughout the campaign and invitations to special events.
