Australian women spend substantially more time on unpaid care work than men do. WGEA have found that this inequality spills out to other inequalities in the labour market, and continues to reinforce antiquated gender stereotypes.

Alleviating this inequality is possible but requires policy prioritisation and innovative practices. Bringing together key experts over three sessions, our panelists will share their recent research findings on the future of work for women, particularly in a post-COVID world, the positive economic impact of paid parental leave and the concept of 'flexible work' and how it manifests in the workplace especially in female dominated industries such as retail.

There will be much to discuss coming out of this year’s National Road Show, and we’d like to take this opportunity to get together to share ideas, thoughts and actions at a companion networking drinks event.

WIS WA Chair, Teika Chinnery will be in attendance and would love for you to join her for an informal evening of networking and discussion.

You can still register for the 2021 National Road Show to make sure you're up to speed.
