Meet the Panellists

Sonia Arakkal: Think Forward

Sonia Arakkal is a founder of Think Forward – a lobby group for young Australians advocating for intergenerational fairness in the tax and transfer system. Think Forward recognises that successive federal governments have failed to act in the long term economic interests of younger and future generations and aims to keep the interests of the young at the forefront of conversations about tax and economic policy. They do this by connecting economists with young people and progressing the conversation on intergenerational fairness with policy makers in Australia.

Think Forward’s writing has been published in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, CEDA and featured on ABC Radio National and various podcasts. Sonia Arakkal is a public policy professional who has worked in government relations, management consulting and as a federal political staffer. She has previously been selected as a Young Social Pioneer by the Foundation of Young Australians and is currently a board member of the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition and Carers WA.
