Panel Discussion including representatives from PwC, Transport for NSW, Unilever, Westpac Group

Flexible work in Australia has long been a practice of both contention and aspiration.  Moreover, with an increasing focus on the value of inclusion, gender equality, shifting age dynamics and the availability of technology, notions of where and when work happens are also changing.  Many employers, in a range of industries, are faced with the challenge of enabling more flexible ways of working, while seemingly retaining older models of face-time and long hours in the office, restricting flexible work options to certain requirements like parenting. Others are boldly trialling and adopting approaches that mainstream access to flexibility for everyone, in every role, for any reason.

You're invited by the Women, Work and Leadership Research Group and the Sydney Policy Lab to the launch of a Discussion Paper by Troy Roderick on how Australian organisations are mainstreaming flexible ways of working and realising sustainable benefits for their people and their businesses, across a range of industry sectors, role types and commercial contexts.
