CDWI Public Lecture Series with Professor Marian Baird, The University of Sydney

Join us today (Thursday 9th June) at 12 noon for Make or Break: Women, work and the social contract with Prof Marian Baird from University of Sydney.

This is a hybrid format event (face to face and webinar). Marian’s talk will start at 12.00 and for those attending in person, lunch and networking will follow.


The social contract for women and work is in a state of flux, perhaps even broken, and remains so post-COVID and post-election. In this lecture, Marion will canvass the flow of work over Australian women’s life courses and the policy responses, omissions and suggestions for change, at each of the points of greatest inequality.
