Congratulations to Kate Jenkins!

Kate Jenkins was announced as our new Sex Discrimination Commissioner by our Federal Minister for Women, The Honourable Michaela Cash, MP.

Kate was the lead partner with Herbert Smith Freehills, specialising in equal opportunity practice for ten years, has been the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner since 2013.

Kate was pivotal in championing the Victorian Champions of Change, following her predecessor, Elizabeth Broderick’s lead to encourage and support men actively participating in the fight for gender equality.

Ms Cash released this statement:

“Ms Jenkins has worked closely with a wide range of organisations, including the Victoria police, to address issues of entrenched discrimination and harassment,” they said. “She has also advanced gender equality in all areas of life with a particular focus on diversity in sport, through the Fair Go Sport and Play By the Rule campaigns.

We look forward to Ms Jenkins’ contribution to the work of the Australian Human Rights Commission where she will extend her productive relationships across the Australian government and the broader Australian community, building on the outstanding work of her predecessor.”

We couldn’t agree more.  Elizabeth Broderick in this recent role and Gillian Triggs who relieved in this post until a replacement for Ms Broderick was secured, are amazing talented women who are inspirational, professional, intelligent and encompass true class and have achieved amazing success and results in their postings!

We look forward to your journey Kate and wish you every success.
