Join Abigail Boyd, Kristin O'Connell and Dan Nahum to discuss the future of work for women and disabled people in the post-Covid world.

Covid-19 has changed the nature of work and unemployment – for better and worse. What will be the long-term impact of the pandemic on work and employment – especially for women and disabled people? 

During the pandemic, we have seen that widespread working from home is possible.  Some workplaces have no intention of bringing everyone back to the office full time. We now know that we have the means to lift everyone, including unemployed people, out of poverty whether they can work full time or not. The pandemic has demonstrated the essential nature of a variety of work that has been and continues to be underpaid or unpaid, and unappreciated.

· How do we make the most of new-found flexibility offered by working from home, while retaining working relationships and work/life balance? 

· What will be the long-term impact on jobs that cannot be done from home? 

· Will we see better conditions and pay for essential workers and others? 

· How can we pressure the government to end poverty permanently? 

· How will the new work environment impact disabled people?

Join Abigail Boyd (NSW Greens MLC, Economics and Disability spokesperson) 

as she talks with: Dan Nahum (Economist, Centre for Future Work, The Australia Institute) and Kristin O’Connell (Antipoverty Centre) to explore the answers.
