Future of Work
How the Victoria Summit 2021 works
The Victoria Summit 2021 is a unique opportunity for thought leaders from industry, unions, governments, the community sector and educational institutions to work together to create a shared, bold, compelling and aspirational vision for Victoria and a path for our state’s economic recovery and long-term prosperity.
The Summit will operate from March 2021 to February 2022 highlighted by two thought-provoking Victoria Summit Days – a Vision Day, followed by a Pathways Day. Vision, pathways and actions will be developed within three specific thematic groups (business and the economy, the future of work, and community health and wellbeing) and culminate in a final playbook launched in February 2022.
Future of Work Theme Overview
The Future of Work theme will explore all elements of the employment relationship – employers, employees, government and training providers – and how working together can maximise employment outcomes, drive productivity, foster entrepreneurship and innovation and support the growth of emerging industries while maximising individual wellbeing and high living standards.

Check out this short video to learn more about the Future of Work theme and its sub themes that will be a central focus throughout the Victoria Summit 2021.
The Future of Work sub themes include: secure work; educational institutions and connections to industry; lifelong learning; transitioning to growth industries; enabling employment; the role of migration; quality of life, flexible work options and work/life balance; and entrepreneurship.
There is already a huge amount of research already undertaken in this area. Our resources page provides an overview of some of this research to help develop a vision for our state.
We want to hear your thoughts on what the vision will look like for Victoria in the next 30 years under the Future of Work theme. Later in the Summit, we will turn our attention towards the pathways that will help us achieve our vision. But for now, let us know in the comments below your big, bold, and aspirational ideas for what the future of Victoria looks like.
