Ms Weir said she was delighted to welcome the new appointee, Ms Jennifer Huppert, to the Board. Ms Huppert brings a wealth of expertise to the position with nearly 30 years' experience, practising largely in the area of commercial property, and is currently a special counsel at KHQ Lawyers.
Ms Huppert has a long involvement with the community and not-for-profit sector. She is currently president of the Jewish Community Council of Victoria, and has previously served on the Boards of the B'nai B'rith Anti-Defamation Commission, Youth Connect and the National Council of Jewish Women of Australia.
From February 2009 until November 2010 Jennifer was a member of the Legislative Council of the Parliament of Victoria, and prior to that served as a director of the Emergency Services and State Superannuation Board.
"Ms Huppert's appointment is a fantastic addition to the Board and, on behalf of the Commission, I look forward to working with Jennifer to achieve the Commission's vision of a community where all people are treated with dignity and respect, and have equal access to opportunity," said Ms Weir.
