Melbourne Institute Virtual Colloquium

Dr Jordy Meekes

Gender differences in employment and wages remain widespread in Australia, despite efforts to close this gap. This colloquium will investigate whether women’s tendencies to work fewer hours with shorter commutes is one of the reasons behind the divide not narrowing by comparing how women and men respond to job losses.

This regularly held colloquium will showcase our projects and researchers. This is a forum that encourages discussion on how research insights should inform policy and practice. More information on the series is available here.
