As restrictions start to ease and the economy responds, it’s timely consider what the workplace of the future will look like and importantly, how we can ensure that the road to recovery is inclusive. This webinar will feature a panel of industry and academic experts and practitioners who will examine these issues.

COVID-19 has changed the face of work, perhaps forever. Huge numbers of staff are now working from home and for those that can’t, social distancing has become the norm. Essential services and front-line staff face risks on a day to day basis. And let’s not forget that many people have been stood down or have lost their jobs altogether.

As restrictions start to ease and the economy responds, it’s timely to consider what the workplace of the future will look like and importantly, how we can ensure that the road to recovery is inclusive. The next webinar will feature a panel of industry and academic experts and practitioners who will examine these issues including:

  • the different impacts of COVID-19 across industries and employment classes, both negative and positive
  • how particular diverse groups, and those with caring responsibilities are being affected (e.g. female, younger, older, people with disability and culturally diverse workers)
  • what an inclusive recovery looks like and how organisations map the road ahead (including the role of flexible working and creating cohesive and inclusive teams)
  • how leading employers are applying a diversity and inclusion lens to their recovery.

The guest panel, moderated by Ming Long AM, Deputy Chair of the DCA Board, includes:

  1. Marian Baird AO, Professor of Gender and Employment Relations, The University of Sydney Business School
  2. Abbie Wright, Diversity & Inclusion Manager, Arup
  3. Lisa Fowkes, Director, Social Ventures Australia
  4. Lesh Prasad, General Manager – Strategic Relationships, HELP Employment and Training.
