This year’s stellar line-up of panellists, moderated by The Hon Geoff Giudice AO, includes:
- Emeritus Professor Ron McCallum AO;
- Caterina Cinanni, National President, National Union of Workers;
- Jacqueline Phillips, Director of Policy, Australian Council of Social Service;
- Dr Joanna Howe, University of Adelaide;
- Kate Carnell AO, Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman; and
- Alex Malley FCPA, Chief Executive CPA Australia.
Growing wealth and income inequality and the decline of economically secure, standard working arrangements are world-wide trends with economic and social consequences.
- What policy settings are needed to respond to these interlinked trends?
- How do we ensure economic security in a world of precarious work?
- Is the rise of insecure work able to be reversed?
For business, there are questions of adaptation and survival in the context of growing insecurity. Instead of competitive tensions increasing insecure work, can co-operative and collaborative workplace cultures lead to higher quality work and reduced inequality?
Don’t miss what is sure to be a compelling debate.
