Academic and industry stakeholders will discuss challenges and opportunities related to digital inclusion for low-income Australian families.

This symposium brings together researchers and industry stakeholders from across Australia in a hybrid in-person and online event to share insights into how to improve digital inclusion for low-income families around the country.

Leading academics and industry partners including Good Things Foundation Australia, The Smith Family, Infoxchange, yourtown, Telstra, Save the Children Australia, Life Without Barriers, and State Library of Queensland will engage in presentations and panels about low-income Australians’ access to and use of digital media and technologies.

The forum will be held in-person at The Gibson Room, Level 10, Z Block, QUT, Gardens Point in Brisbane with the option to join online via Zoom. It will provide a chance for those engaged in improving digital inclusion in Australia to reflect on past and current work across different sectors, and to look forward to future efforts to advance the digital inclusion of low-income families.

This event is presented by the DMRC in partnership with the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making and Society as part of the ARC Linkage Project, Advancing digital inclusion in low-income Australian families.
