Event overview

Despite Australia's low unemployment rate and record levels of workforce participation, there are a significant number of communities in Australia experiencing entrenched disadvantage. At this event, Deputy Premier the Hon. Jeremy Rockliff will deliver a keynote address on the State Government’s strategic vision to address entrenched disadvantage in the Tasmanian economy, including in the area of education reform.

The Deputy Premier’s address will be followed by a facilitated panel discussion with social policy experts and contributors to CEDA’s policy perspective, Addressing entrenched disadvantage in Australia.

This event will discuss:

  • The implications of chronic poverty and disadvantage for economic and social policy;
  • Economic data and research on disadvantage – What we know, and how this can inform our approach to overcoming disadvantage in the community;
  • Identifying individuals at risk of entrenched disadvantage;
  • Innovation in the delivery of social services; and
  • Programs and initiatives in education and early childhood intervention, mental health, disability and others.
