Governance

The Commission leadership (consisting of the President, Commissioners and Chief Executive) hold formal Commission meetings with senior management four times a year. These meetings facilitate high-level reporting of progress against the annual work plan and President and Commissioners’ term goals, allows management to provide updates from across the Commission’s work, and provides a space for key decisions by the leadership team. Published materials by the Commission are formally approved - as required - through a process in accordance with the Australian Human Rights Commission Act 1986 (Cth). The Commission obtains appropriate ethics approval for all relevant major activities.

Our risk management framework provides a mechanism for proactively identifying and mitigating risks across the organisation, and for monitoring the operating environment. We are supported by our internal auditors who conduct regular audit reviews and other assurance activities for our strategic planning and core business processes.
