We'd love to hear your stories about diversity in Canberra. Sharing via social media using the #diversitygoeswith will ensure everyone hears your story, but you can also contact us using this form. 

Anonymous Information/Report

You can also use this form to anonymously notify us about issues of concern. The ACT Human Rights Commission encourages residents of Canberra to notify us about any serious instances of discrimination or  vilification. 

Anonymous information you provide may assist in delivering the services and support to those who really need them. Please provide as much detail as you can about what happened, including where it occurred and when it happened. This will aid us to better understand what you are reporting. 

Make a Formal Complaint Instead? 

An anonymous report made using this form is not the same as making a formal complaint to us. We may be able to resolve your concerns if you choose to make a complaint, and there is more information about our complaint handling role on our discrimination webpage.

Please note, if you choose to use this form to provide anonymous information, rather than  a formal complaint via our discrimination webpage, we cannot tell you the outcome of our investigation of your concerns.

Diversity in action

Following the trail of diversity in the Australian Capital Territory.

Nick Kyrgios

Professional tennis player, Nick Kyrgios, was born and raised in Canberra. Attending Radford and Daramalan College, Nick initially showed promise as a basketball player (representing the ACT and Australia) before settling on tennis in his teens. 

“Canberra is home,” says Nick. ”I love so much about this town.”

With a Greek father (George) and a Malaysian mother (Nill) - Nick is also passionate about his diverse cultural heritage. “I recognise where I am from,” he explains. “I am proud and respectful of my heritage. My parents and grandparents bring a range of cultural backgrounds together.

"I am a proud Australian!”

Based on his experiences growing up in the ACT, Nick believes Canberra to be a tolerant community, but sadly notes there remains ‘small pockets of hate everywhere’. Nick believes education and awareness to be the key to eradicate those pockets of hate. 

“The promotion of ethnic diversity and how it benefits society in so many ways [will help Canberra become a more tolerant and inclusive community]”, Nick says.

“Throughout my professional career there has been a couple of well-publicised times where [our] cultural diversity is brought into an unwarranted negative spotlight,” says Nick, but he chooses to focus on the positive, rather than the negative. 

“I’d rather not dwell on that,’ he says. “I believe in embracing cultural diversity and [the fact that cultural diversity is] a strong characteristic of Australia.”

Nick believes we can all help by promoting tolerance and embracing cultural diversity, and adds that by being prompt to eradicate all expressions of racism, we will create a community where all can benefit.
