Future of Work

The changing nature of work poses significant challenges for society. It has been estimated that technology could make 40% of Australian jobs redundant in a decade. The rise of the sharing and gig economies also signal a transition away from roles to tasks.

With the rise of less secure and stable employment, what kind of social institutions and protections are needed? Will this increasing automation lead to mass unemployment? And how much of this changing nature of work is actually inevitable and what impact will the choices we make today have?

Join the NSW Fabians and a great panel of speakers to discuss the future of work.

SPEAKERS:
Associate Professor Sarah Kaine, UTS Business School
Dr Victor Quirk, Centre of Full Employment and Equity
