Northern Territory Anti-Discrimination Commission 2006/2007 Annual Report 30 Public Education This section of the ADC Annual Report comprises a report of the activities and performance of the Public Education and Training Unit. Details of significant milestones of the 2006-2007 financial year are detailed below along with information about the Units operation and performance. The year has been challenging because, after many years of service with the Commission, the former Director of Education and Training, Sue Rhodes, took a leave of absence to accept a position in Canberra. Judy Clisby temporarily moved across from managing the Community Visitor Program to the position and did an excellent job for three months until the position was filled. During this time the Commissioner and the Director of Conciliation Policy and Law also took on additional commitments to deliver training programs. Surya Silva has now been employed for six months as Acting Director of Education and Training commencing the end of May 2007.
