This video is a filmed session from the Women in Tax National Congress 2017, PowerPoint slides are incorporated with the presentation.

As the internet and social media provide unprecedented access to information and commentary, an unforeseen consequence is that responses to contemporary problems are becoming increasingly emotional, personal or ideological. Research, evidence and balanced reports are often ignored in favour of subjective, entrenched views. If facts don’t matter, how can public policy and laws be developed to address today's challenges? Professor Triggs will considered the implications for women leaders in this “post-truth” era.
