AIFS 2020 Conference

More than just a conference

The AIFS 2020 Conference will be more than just another conference – it will be an event that showcases and shares research, is a catalyst for national conversations, and charts a course for the wellbeing of families towards 2050.

In the Institute’s 40th anniversary year, the 2020 Conference will bring together key policy makers, practitioners, researchers and thought leaders, across sectors and jurisdictions, to explore how policies and service systems can better support families to achieve their aspirations and flourish in a rapidly changing world.

The diverse conference program will facilitate opportunities for audience engagement, debate and inquiry to enable genuine collaborative discussion. Formats in the program will include workshops, fireside chats, roundtable discussions, panel sessions, evaluation snapshots, e-poster presentations and symposia to generate conversations with impact.
