Zero Discrimination Day, 1 March 2020
Zero Discrimination Day by UNAIDS offers an opportunity to celebrate diversity, say no to discrimination and promote tolerance.
UNAIDS first launched this campaign in 2014 to help communities around the world speak up and prevent discrimination from standing in the way of anyone achieving their ambitions, goals and dreams, regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, sexuality, religion or HIV status.
The theme for 2021 is “End Inequalities” and UNAIDS is highlighting the urgent need to take action to end the inequalities surrounding income, sex, age, health status, occupation, disability, sexual orientation, drug use, gender identity, race, class, ethnicity and religion that continue to persist around the world.
Inequality is growing for more than 70% of the global population, exacerbating the risk of division and hampering economic and social development. COVID-19 is hitting the most vulnerable people the hardest – even as new vaccines against COVID-19 are becoming available, there is great inequality in accessing them.
The Information and Privacy Commission NSW is committed to promoting a workplace free from discrimination and supports the rights of individuals – supported by our Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan.
