Much of corporate Australia has been participating in the largest ever experiment on working-from-home during the Pandemic, with many large employers declaring they expect staff to continue to work from home in some shape or form long into the future.

Many, but not all, employees working from home have also experimented with new forms of flexibility around how and when they work — especially those who’ve been managing remote learning with kids, and/or sharing their home equipment and office supplies with others.
So how much of this will stick? And how will this period transform what we know about flexible work?
This coming Flexible Working Day, June 10, we’re inviting readers to participate in a live conversation on the future of flexible work — and why ‘normalising’ flexible work is so essential to achieving workplace gender equality, and for making workplaces more inclusive.
Women’s Agenda has partnered with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission (VEOHRC) to bring this special session on flexible work to mark Flexible Working Day.
VEOHRC Commissioner Kristen Hilton will join Angela Priestley in conversation to discuss:
* The benefits of flexible work for men and women
* The need to destigmatise flexible work requests
* Will COVID-19 aid or hinder the push for flexible work?
* Your rights on flexible work
You’re invited to ask questions and share your experiences.
