Launched in August 2018 by the Queensland Premier The Hon. Annastacia Palaszczuk, the McKell Institute Queensland will bring an independent, outside voice to public policy discussion in Queensland and ensure the Queensland perspective is well represented in national public policy debate.
McKell Queensland engages business, academia and community leaders in the contest of ideas and host events with decision makers on public policy issues.
This initiative is overseen by a local advisory committee that shapes the direction of the Queensland research agenda and events program. The McKell Institute Queensland is led by Executive Director, Marianna O’Gorman.
