Charity regulator avoids nation ‘bias’

0

The head of the national charity regulator has asked his staff not to make acknowledgements to country beginning with “we” in their email signatures, fearing it may demonstrate a bias to indigenous charities.

Australian charities and not-for-profits commissioner and former Labor minister Gary Johns has told senators of the step while being grilled at a hearing in Canberra.

“The words raise a perception of bias that I’m not treating all the charities the same. I think that’s plain on the face of it,” Dr Johns said on Wednesday.
