Federation University Australia was delighted to co-host the 2022 Menzies Foundation Oration 'Do I have a future? A better deal for young people in Australia'.
Leading in to the 2022 Federal Government's Jobs and Skills Summit, we ask that priority be given to Australian youth – how do we build pathways for our young people to thrive?
Executive Director of the Brotherhood of St. Laurence and our Orator for the evening, Travers McLeod, was joined by a panel of young leaders to set a future agenda for the 'greater good'.
This hybrid event was moderated by Daniel Ziffer, ABC journalist.
