You are invited by the Australian Fabians in conjunction with Per Capita and the Victorian Women’s Trust to this event
Join us to hear some leading speakers and to workshop how we can achieve equity for women in feminised occupations. What are the current inequities for women in the workforce? What obstacles or forces inhibit an equitable approach to remuneration? What could be done to address these? What specific policy recommendations could the ALP consider?
We are interested to hear from you on policy directions. This is your opportunity to bring your own ideas on the best way forward. Our discussions will form the basis of a report prepared for the shadow Treasurer and the shadow minister for Women’s Affairs.
