The Outlook Conference is the leading national forum on economic and social policy, bringing together thought-leaders and policy influencers for rigorous discussion of issues facing Australia today. This is the 12th Outlook Conference and will focus on the balance between economic growth and social equity, and how this balance affects and is affected by political ambition.

The Life Course Centre is hosting Plenary 4 on Equity and Fairness on Day 1, 11 October.

Australia has been experiencing strong economic growth for decades but does growth equate to equal opportunity? Are our policies and practice fostering equity? How do we ensure we are delivering effective programs and promoting the well-being of all Australians across the income distribution?

The Hon. Dr Andrew Leigh MP | Shadow Assistant Treasurer, Shadow Minister for Trade, Shadow Minister for Competition and Productivity, Shadow Minister for Charities and Not-for-Profits, Australian Labor Party
