FACTBase Talks

Our first FACTBase Talks for the year coincides with the release of the next Bulletin in our Future of Work project. FACTBase Bulletin 73 explores how planning to meet long-term State Government targets for job distribution within Greater Perth should differentiate between ‘strategic’ and ‘population-following’ jobs.

Join us to be involved in a discussion about what this data means for the future of work. The FACTBase Bulletin will be released the following day to the general public.
