  • eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under this Act
  • advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
  • foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
