Policy Forum Pod: Time for work to change

 

Why does society still imagine work as distinct from everyday life? How can policymakers rethink how time is allocated to address gender inequity and improve population health? And can we create a world of work that generates a surplus of things that people really need – of education, culture, care and love? On this episode of Policy Forum Pod, Professor Sharon Bessell and Dr Arnagretta Hunter are joined by Professor Lyndall Strazdins from The Australian National University (ANU) and Dr John Falzon from Per Capita to think about the future of work and conclude our mini-series.

Lyndall Strazdins is a Professor and Australian Research Council Future Fellow at the National Centre for Epidemiology and Population Health, The Australian National University.

John Falzon OAM is Senior Fellow, Inequality and Social Justice at Per Capita.

Sharon Bessell is Professor of Public Policy and Director of Gender Equity and Diversity at Crawford School of Public Policy at ANU.

Arnagretta Hunter is a Human Futures Fellow for the ANU College of Health and Medicine, a cardiologist, physician, and a Senior Clinical Lecturer for the ANU Medical School.
