Workforce Futures


5pm–7pm Wednesday 18 September 2019, Sydney

This special occasion forms part of our 50th anniversary program of events taking place across the country.  These events acknowledge the vital role of the humanities in helping us understand our past, make sense of our present, and ensure a humanised future for all people.

A resilient Australian future workforce will need a mix of skills, knowledge and attributes to effectively deliver the nation’s innovation agenda and to be globally competitive in an age of rapid technological change and geo-political disruption. The Workforce Futures event will have leaders from the humanities, industry, education and government discuss ethical, creative and environmental impacts on shaping a diverse, adaptable and creative future workforce.

This free event, open to all.

The program will commence at 5pm at the State Library of New South Wales. A reception to follow at 6:15pm.

Further details of the program will be announced soon.

We are grateful for the generous support by the State Library of New South Wales in hosting this event.
