Engagement

Engagement activities are a fundamental part of this research project, and will be updated on this page over the life of the project.

Berkeley Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law Study Group Annual Conference (2018): The Berkeley Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law Conference at Melbourne Law School brought together 30 speakers and 55 participants from around the world for two days of enjoyable and stimulating discussion, including representatives from all equality commissions in Australia. It featured fruitful discussions regarding ways in which we could strengthen the links between equality commissions and Australian academia. A summary of the event is available here.

UK Roundtable on Age Discrimination in Employment (2016): A roundtable was held at University College London on Friday 9 December 2016 on age discrimination in employment. The roundtable brought together academics, policy makers, government departments, employer groups, trade unions, legal practitioners, equality commissions and age groups to consider progress on addressing age discrimination in the workplace, and the steps that still need to be taken to achieve equality. The roundtable was funded by a grant from the Office for Research at Melbourne Law School at the University of Melbourne. The report on the outcomes of the Roundtable can be viewed below.
