Authored By Carly Fordred

The Albanese Government has today released an issues paper in preparation for the Jobs and Skills Summit to be held on September 1 - 2 in Canberra.

The goal of the Summit is to find common ground on how Australia can build a bigger, better trained and more productive workforce; boost real wages and living standards; and create more opportunities for more Australians. 

The Summit will cover five broad themes: 

  • maintaining full employment and growing productivity
  • boosting job security and wages  
  • lifting participation and reducing barriers to employment  
  • delivering a high‑quality labour force through skills, training and migration  
  • maximising opportunities in the industries of the future. 

A strong overarching focus on women’s experiences of the labour market and the challenges of ensuring women have equal opportunities and equal pay will feature throughout the Summit.
