Event Overview

The types of jobs we have in Australia will fundamentally change in coming decades. CEDA’s major research report for 2015 - Australia's Future Workforce? - will examine the future of Australia’s workforce. If Australia is to maintain a robust economy that is internationally competitive, we must plan now for our future needs and discuss the following:

  • What skills and capabilities we will develop, adapt and retain;
  • The challenges and opportunities of new technologies and digital disruption;
  • How will we transform and create innovative business for the future; and
  • What are the social consequences from a changing workforce.  

Join report authors and policy commentators to discuss the report and give their expert view on Australia's future workforce.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Australia's Future Workforce?

Public event advice – Coronavirus

At CEDA we are proud to regularly convene and engage speakers and audiences as an essential element of our efforts to broaden discussion and debate of the most important policy issues facing Australia. In doing so, our first priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our guests and staff.

CEDA is currently delivering a digital program of public events, podcasts and virtual Trustee roundtable discussions; hybrid events with both a livestream and audience in attendance; and face-face events, where there is member demand and they can be delivered in accordance with government health advice for a specific state.

For face-to-face gatherings, CEDA is working closely with our hosts and venues to ensure that social distancing can be maintained and facilities and equipment have been properly sanitised. Attendance numbers will strictly adhere to government guidelines for each state.In line with government advice we request people that are unwell with cough or fever or other respiratory symptoms do not attend CEDA events. We also ask that you follow government advice and maintain social distancing by refraining from shaking hands or exchanging physical greetings, and wherever possible, staying at least 1.5 metres away from others.

CEDA will continue to closely monitor government advice regarding public gatherings and will follow all relevant health advice from the Australian government in relation to COVID-19.
