Event description

Description

With an increasingly ageing population in Australia, what exactly do we think about older people? Join Dr Josh Healy, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Workplace Leadership, and Dr Ruth Williams, Academic Convenor of the Hallmark Ageing Research Initiative, as they discuss their new research into Australians attitudes to older people. Josh and Ruth will be joined by Age Discrimination Commissioner, The Honourable Dr Kay Patterson, as well as industry leaders, for a discussion on how Australians attitudes to ageing could impact the future of the workplace in Australia. There will also be a debut screening of the University of Melbournes new film about the study, including some revealing anecdotes from members of the public on their attitudes to ageing.

Date: Tuesday 27 March

Time: 6-7pm panel discussion, 7-8pm drinks and canapes

Location: Building number 160, Peter Hall Building, cnr Monash Road and Swanston Street (entry via Monash Road), The University of Melbourne
