Labour, Employment, and Work conference

Labour, Employment, and Work (LEW) conference 2020

‘Good work and its impact’

Cross sector insights from government, third sector, volunteering, and practice


It is with regret that the organising committee of the Conference on Labour, Employment and Work have decided to not proceed with the 2020 conference in November. The uncertainty around travel and the structure of events in the Covid 19 pandemic makes it difficult to plan ahead and we have decided we will reassess at the end of 2020 to see if it is possible to go ahead in 2021.

While we did not want to revert to a virtual conference we are continuing to discuss possible ‘symposia’ or seminars around topics that would be of interest to our LEW Conference contributors and audience. This might comprise both in-person and on-line events later this year and will likely also involve the Australia New Zealand Third Sector Research (ANZTSR) network. We will distribute more information in the next couple of months.
