Dawn Robertson, the Chief Executive of The Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct started her career in Arts Education before moving into executive management positions in arts, culture, heritage and tourism both in National and Provincial Government in South Africa. She was responsible for the development and implementation of the multi-million CreateSA project which enabled thousands of young creatives to achieve a qualification in the arts.
One of her greatest challenges to date was the coordination of the Gauteng 2010 FIFA 2010 World Cup Technical Task Team. This included managing the legislative and operational environment whilst facilitating implementation of all inter-governmental infrastructure, marketing and legacy programmes. After the World Cup, she was appointed Chief Executive Officer at the Gauteng Tourism Authority a position she held for the next five years.
She took up her current portfolio in 2016. Besides managing the museums on the Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct, her current position includes spearheading the development of the remaining land-parcels to accommodate the Chapter 9 Institutions on the site which has been home to the Constitutional Court of South Africa since 2004.
