Victorian Ombudsman Deborah Glass has been announced as the keynote speaker for B’nai B’rith Victoria’s upcoming annual Human Rights Oration.

The event will take place on March 15 at the new Melbourne Holocaust Museum.

As the Victorian Ombudsman, Glass is an independent officer of the Victorian Parliament responsible for investigating complaints about government departments and agencies. Her role is to promote fairness, transparency and good governance in the public sector, ensuring that citizens receive the high-quality services they deserve.

In the lecture, Glass will present “Speaking truth to power”, which refers to her defence of human rights when these might have been adversely impacted by decisions of public organisations.

The B’nai B’rith Victoria Human Rights Oration aims to raise awareness of human rights issues and promote greater respect for diversity and tolerance in society.

This year’s event is particularly significant as it will take place at the Melbourne Holocaust Museum which serves as a powerful reminder of the need to combat intolerance and bigotry.

“We are delighted to have the Victorian Ombudsman as our keynote speaker for this important event,” B’nai B’rith Victoria president Associate Professor Peter Schattner said.

“Her extensive knowledge and experience in human rights issues will provide valuable insights into the challenges we face as a society, and inspire us to work together towards a more just and equitable world.”

B’nai B’rith Victoria is committed to promoting respect, understanding, and tolerance among all members of society. The oration is just one of the many ways in which it works to achieve this goal.
