Jobs, Work, Justice and Gender in the Pandemic

Webinar organised by Sustainable Prosperity, 24th August 2020. Australia went into the pandemic with high under-employment, stagnant wages, widespread wage theft and long-lived gender inequities at work and at home. How has the pandemic affected these? How have responses to the pandemic addressed - or failed to address - these challenges? What should we do to fix work-based injustices and create jobs for women and men during the pandemic and recession that follows?

Speakers: Emeritus Professor Barbara Pocock, UniSA and Abbey Kendall, Director Working Women's Centre SA.
