We are the experts

The Anti-Discrimination Board is the independent statutory which administers anti-discrimination law in NSW.    

Our on-site training programs show you how to develop an inclusive, diverse and healthy organisational culture.

Training at your premises

We can provide all our courses on-site at your premises. We ADJUST them to suit your organisation and people. We use examples that your people will relate to, integrate your policies and procedures into our course content and address any specific problems that you have identified.

We have provided customised training solutions for sectors as diverse as mining, community welfare, hospitality, aged care, finance, government, retail, education, manufacturing, health and media.

What kind of courses?

We can provide any of the courses listed. We can also develop any other relevant course that you need. Examples include managing sexual harassment, managing age diversity, race discrimination and carer's responsibilities.

The courses range from an hour to two days. Some courses have a fixed length, while others can be adapted to suit your needs.

Everyone benefits

Discrimination, bullying and sexual harassment can happen anywhere. Everyone has a role to play in prevention.

We can work with separate groups of managers or staff as needed, or with groups that include both. We also run courses for students, boards, members of clubs and associations and any other group that needs assistance to achieve a diverse, inclusive and respectful environment.

Generally we recommend groups of 15-20 people. These numbers enable us to ensure full participation and explore individual concerns.

What people have said about our training

  • “The feedback from those who attended our Workforce Diversity Groups (EEO) awareness training was very positive. The case examples were a good interpretation of how current harassment, discrimination and bullying laws operate in Australia." 
  • "ADB were very supportive in delivering a program that enabled our interstate based workforce to link in via telephone conference and net meeting. This was further enhanced through the presenter’s broader knowledge of interstate Workforce Diversity Groups (EEO) legislation. We will definitely consider engaging the services of ADB in the future.”​
  • "The training facilitated by the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board was invaluable, especially as it incorporated the GEO Group Australia policies and procedures relating to bullying and harassment as well as raising grievances." 
  • "I would not hesitate in using the services of the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board again.”
  • “ThNSW ADB tailored their grievance handling course for Valspar’s senior managers and line managers. The training was closely aligned to our policies, which were reviewed by the ADB and included in the training material." 
  • "The trainer demonstrated her expertise in delivering the material to our managers, both as a trainer and through her experience and knowledge."
  • "The theory was supported with practical and effective case studies and real life issues."
  • "The style of the training was effective and facilitated involvement from all the participants, whose feedback was also extremely positive.”
