Event description

Description

This event is by invitation only.

What challenges and opportunities lie ahead for the Western Australian economy, and what will the future of work in this corner of the world look like in the coming decades?

The University of Western Australia’s Public Policy Institute is pleased to invite you to an exclusive round-table luncheon to explore these important questions.

Our panel of experts consists of business leaders, academics, heads of non-government organistaions, and senior executives representing federal, state and local governments. Rather than making separate presentations, these thought leaders will be discussing and debating the future of work in Western Australia.


The key questions to be debated include:

  • What industries and sectors are likely to recede in importance, and which are likely to grow?
  • What technological innovations are likely to drive change in the world of work?
  • Are automation and artificial intelligence an opportunity or a threat to WA’s future workers?
  • Is the “gig economy” here to stay?
  • What skills are necessary for the future workforce, and how can universities and governments best provide them?
  • How will the future of work for government employees be different from those employed in the private and not-for-profit sectors?
  • Will WA ever have a universal basic income?


Join us for this important event. Bring your crystal ball and be ready to engage in the conversation during the question and answer session.


Panel experts include:

  • Jeff Dzodz, State Manager, Department of Jobs and Small Business
  • Caleb Goods, Lecturer in Management and Organisations, UWA
  • Meredith Hammat, Secretary, UnionsWA
  • Alex Lyon, Executive Director, Public Sector Labour Relations
  • Chris Rodwell, CEO, Chamber of Commerce and Industry WA
  • Jamie Simon, Head of Enterprise and Government, SEEK
  • Jeannette Taylor, Associate Professor of Public Administration, UWA


Organisers: Andrew R. Timming, Associate Professor of Human Resource Management, UWA and Nicole Woolf, Acting Principal Labour Relations Advisor, DMIRS.
