New Role for PIAC Chief
10 June 2010 at 3:57 pm

The Public Interest Advocacy Centre (PIAC) CEO, Robin Banks has been appointed Tasmania’s Anti-Discrimination Commissioner.

The Tasmanian-born Banks has led PIAC for the past six years. She takes up the new position in Hobart on 12 July 2010.

Banks is a legal practitioner with particular expertise in disability rights and discrimination law, privacy and human rights.

Banks says it’s been a  privilege to lead the work of the Public Interest Advocacy Centre and the work is vital in shaping law and policy and challenging injustice.

She says her new role will bring different challenges heading up a smaller organisation with statutory regulatory responsibility for the Anti-Discrimination Act in Tasmania. 

PIAC Chair Shauna Jarrett says Banks’s contribution to PIAC has been invaluable.

Jarrett says that under Bank’s leadership, PIAC has become Australia’s leading public interest law centre.

No announcement has been made about a replacement for Banks.
