Victorian Fabians. Spring Forums on the Future of Work

Event 2: Work outside the job market - hidden unpaid work

While work creates both meaning and income for those with jobs, this is changing. A growing number of  people are unpaid or underpaid, and some work that once was within the market is now pushed out. There is a trend for more work to become unpaid across the economy. Some new areas can easily be identified in addition to traditional unpaid care work for children, those with a disability and the aged.

Emeritus Professor Barbara Pocock, AM, will address the trends and shifts in paid and unpaid work.

Tilly South, Policy and Campaigns Adviser, Choice magazine; founder, Interns Australia, will speak on unpaid internships.

Join in

We are experimenting with a more interactive and participatory format for this event. You will be seated in small groups around tables instead of lecture style. After an initial presentation by Barbara Pocock and Tilly South of about 20 minutes each, we will ask you and the people at your table to reflect on what you have heard and what you think about it. The night will finish with a plenary session where we can discuss and question, together with the speakers, the implications of work outside the job market.

Members $5, Non-Members $10, cash only (and bring more as there will be a raffle!)
