Community attitudes towards poverty and inequality in Australia: latest research findings and how to talk about them

14 December 2023 @ 1:00 pm -2:00 pm


Community attitudes are an important part of building support for policy reform to reduce poverty and inequality. This webinar will present the results of a recent survey of the Australian public undertaken as part of the UNSW-ACOSS Poverty and Inequality Partnership. We will be joined by Mark Chenery, an expert in values-based messaging and communications and Co-Founder and Director of Common Cause Australia, and Jacqueline Phillips, Deputy CEO and Director of Policy and Advocacy at ACOSS.

Join us as we discuss not only what these results mean but also how we can talk about them to build further support for policy changes.
