The Australian Human Rights Commission is deeply saddened by the passing of one of Australia’s great champions for equality, former Age Discrimination and Disability Discrimination Commissioner, The Hon Susan Ryan AO.
Ms Ryan dedicated her life to social justice and making Australia a fairer place. From 2011 to 2016, Ms Ryan worked tirelessly to advance the rights of older Australians as Australia’s inaugural Age Discrimination Commissioner and also assumed the role of Disability Discrimination Commissioner from 2014.
