Event description

Description

Dr Lisa Denny will explain workforce polarisation in Tasmania and the role of industry structure by comparing the occupational skill distribution between 2006 and 2016.

The presentation will provide evidence of heightened job polarisation accompanied by marked skill level and occupation group changes, as well as spare capacity within the workforce. These findings may inform policy-making in the fields of education, skills and industry development.

Lisa is the Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Social Change, University of Tasmania. During the past 20 years, she has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience in both private industry and the public sector in Tasmania. Lisa has an intricate understanding and knowledge of the influences and drivers of Tasmania’s population and economy and a deep commitment to ensuring that the state’s potential is realised.

As a demographer and quantitative researcher, Lisa provides independent demographic analysis and advice at state, regional or local level using multiple social and economic variables.

She holds a Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Arts (Hons) and a Graduate Diploma of Education (Secondary) and in 2018 completed a PhD with the University of Tasmania, School of Social Sciences. Lisa's PhD research is entitled 'Skill Utilisation: an alternative to the 3Ps solution to population ageing'.

When: 16:00-17:30, Thursday, 28 February 2018.
