Embedding the Charter of Human Rights into LG Decision Making

A Practical Transparent Guide to Embrace the Benefits of this Important Charter

This program is designed specifically for local government. This program will help everyone to consider the charter in their decision making in the workplace. This program will show participants that they can adhere to the charter confidently, seamlessly and transparently in their day to day activities.


Our human rights are essential and shouldn’t be taken for granted

Ask yourself the following:

  1. I have a very good working knowledge of the charter of human rights.
  2. I ensure our internal and external communications are in line with the charter.
  3. I focus on the problem and not the person.
  4. I take responsibility of any failures and avoid blame shifting.
  5. I do not give people unreasonable ultimatums. E.g. My way or the highway.
  6. I am very tolerant of other cultures and beliefs.
  7. I consider the charter when making decisions.
  8. I never appear threatening or overbearing.
  9. I listen to other people’s opinions.
  10. I understand that people have different values and therefore different behaviours.
  11. I do not overburden people with too many tasks and deadlines.
  12. I feel free to express myself.
  13. I am aware of privacy laws and how they affect the workplace.
  14. I communicate with everybody fairly.
  15. I appreciate differences in cultures and beliefs.
