From today, the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) will be known as the Australian Human Rights Commission. Our new corporate identity is reproduced below:

Australian Human Rights Commission

The change in corporate identity to the Australian Human Rights Commission will be used on all communications and publications.

The design represents an evolution from the long-standing HREOC logo, and includes the positioning statement, ‘everyone, everywhere, everyday’, which is drawn from the Australian Human Rights Commission’s new vision statement, “Human rights: everyone, everywhere, everyday”.

The new corporate image for the Australian Human Rights Commission is the first step towards ensuring that all Australian audiences know that Australia has an independent national institution with the responsibility to protect and promote human rights in Australia.

The Commission’s goals are outlined in its new vision and mission statements which can be found at www.humanrights.gov.au/about/index.html

The Commission’s legal name will remain the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission.
