Australian Equality Law Forum 2019

Australian Equality Law Forum

Thursday 28 November 2019
Melbourne Law School

The inaugural Australian Equality Law Forum offers a unique opportunity to discuss and debate emerging issues in Australian equality and discrimination law. The Forum will bring together leading scholars, practitioners, and representatives from government, equality bodies, unions, employers, not-for-profits and other organisations to promote dialogue around some of the most challenging issues in equality law today. In 2019, the themes selected for discussion at the Forum include: sexual harassment; exceptions and exemptions; enforcement; and equality law in the workplace. The Forum will feature short contributions from leading voices in the field, followed by structured discussion and debate from all participants. Please join us for what promises to be an exciting and stimulating day.

The Australian Equality Law Forum is sponsored and hosted by the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law at Melbourne Law School, the University of Melbourne. It is being organised by Associate Professor Alysia Blackham and Liam Elphick, Melbourne Law School, and Adriana Orifici, Monash University / Melbourne Law School.

The organisers of the Australian Equality Law Forum are keen to minimise the environmental impact of our event. We will provide all participants with a reusable mug for refreshments. Please indicate if you do NOT want a mug when registering. We also ask all participants to bring a water bottle with them for the day. Please return your name tag for reuse after the Forum. Boxes will be placed by the exit of the venue for this purpose. These small measures will go a long way to reducing the environmental footprint of the Forum.
