Sonia Arakkal, Founder, Think Forward

Sonia Arakkal is a co-founder of Think Forward – a lobby group for young Australians advocating for intergenerational fairness in the tax and transfer system. Think Forward recognises that successive federal governments have failed to act in the long-term economic interests of young people and aims to keep the interests of the young at the forefront of conversations about tax and economic policy. Think Forward is leading a coalition of youth organisations, economists and the civil sector to call for a parliamentary inquiry into economic intergenerational fairness. Sonia's writing on intergenerational fairness has been published in Fairfax newspapers and she has spoken on the topic on ABC TV and radio.  She is a board member of the Australian Youth Affairs Coalition and Carers WA. She has previously worked as a management consultant and a federal political staffer and is currently a senior analyst at the PerthUSAsia Centre.
