About the webinar series
The crisis sparked by Covid-19 has had a profound impact on our lives. Whilst the immediate crisis will pass, its social and economic consequences will be long lasting. We risk seeing deeper inequality and loss of opportunity for people who were already disadvantaged in the labour market. We could use the recovery phase to build a more inclusive labour market, in which all Australians can thrive.
In SVA’s ‘Towards an inclusive recovery’ webinar series, we will host a range of conversations with thought leaders and experts to explore what an inclusive recovery of the labour market might look like.
Covid-19: impact on the labour market
Professor of Economics at the University of Melbourne, Prof. Jeff Borland discusses his recent research on the labour market impacts of Covid-19, and the added risk to those who already face obstacles to employment.
Is now the time for a jobs guarantee?
Dr Peter Davidson, Adjunct Senior Lecturer, Social Policy Research Centre, UNSW and Shirley Jackson, Senior Economist at Per Capita, discuss what a 'jobs guarantee' might mean for Australia, and whether it is realistic.
First Australians and the economic crisis
Dr Josie Douglas (Central Land Council), Dr Francis Markham (Australian National University) and Professor Nareen Young (University of Technology Sydney) discuss the current risks to First Australian people and communities.
