Past forums

Employee Wellbeing – March 2024

In this forum, we heard from Georgie Harman, CEO of Beyond Blue on the importance of supporting employee wellbeing as a strategic priority in our workplaces. 

We heard great insights from a wellbeing panel on how to build psychologically safe, inclusive, and healthy workplaces that inspire organisational change and contribute to an inclusive public sector. 

We also heard employees share their lived experience of managing wellbeing, and how the intersectionality of our identities uniquely shapes our experiences.



Carers and Caring Responsibilities – August 2023

In this forum, we heard a keynote from Dr Rae Cooper and Dr Liz Hill from Sydney University Gender Equality in Working Life Research Initiative. They explored work and care in Australia, the architecture of gendered inequality at work and how care shapes workplace gender inequalities across the life course. They also explored gaps and policy levers, with a focus on flexible work. 

We also heard great insights from a lived experience panel and a carers workplace support panel.
