The Seniors Festival Saturday Seminar hosted by U3A Port Phillip

The Role of the Age Discrimination Commissioner in the Australian Human Rights Commission

U3A Port Philip is delighted to announce that our Seniors Festival Seminar guest speaker will be Hon Dr Kay Patterson AO.

Dr Patterson is a lifelong Girl Guide, teacher and academic, a former member of Parliament, and now the Age Discrimination Commissioner with the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Dr Patterson was appointed a Parliamentary Secretary in the Federal Government in 1988 and held the Health and Social Securities portfolios in the Cabinet from 2001 to 2006. She retired from the Senate in 2008.

Throughout her career Dr Patterson has been passionately committed to the wellbeing of older citizens and now, as our Age Discrimination Commissioner, she works tirelessly to improve the lot of older citizens, disadvantaged older workers, those facing homelessness or those affected by elder abuse. She was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia in 2016.
