Addressing entrenched disadvantage in Australia-SA

Addressing entrenched disadvantage in Australia-SA

Apr 29
The economics of inequality and entrenched disadvantage in Australia are of growing concern. The social and economic cost and resulting constraints to growth demands new thinking and new approaches.

Peter Sandeman, Chief Executive Officer, Anglicare

Event overview

Despite Australia's rich and thriving economy, there are a significant number of individuals and communities in Australia who continue to experience disadvantage. Disadvantage has significant implications for our economy, and therefore all Australians.

CEDA's report, Addressed Entrenched Disadvantage in Australia, will focus on three key groups - individuals with poor education levels, indigenous communities and people living with mental health issues - and will discuss issues including:

  • The nature and extent of disadvantage;
  • The cost and impact of disadvantage; and
  • Ways to address long-term and chronic disadvantage

Report authors and policy commentators will discuss the report's recommendations for addressing entrenched disadvantage and breaking the poverty cycle.

All attendees will receive a complimentary copy of Addressed Entrenched Disadvantage in Australia. Register now.
