Webinar on combating gender segregation in education and labour markets

On 13 September the webinar Combating gender segregation in education and labour markets takes place. The webinar is arranged by NIVA in collaboration with NIKK.

Both the labour markets and the education systems in the Nordic countries are highly gender-segregated. This gender segregation has consequences for study and working conditions, pay, and the distribution of power and resources. The gender segregation is particularly apparent in vocational education and training (VET), which is the focus of the report Vocational education and training in the Nordic countries – Knowledge and interventions to combat gender segregation, produced by NIKK.

Angelica Simonsson, PhD in Education and author of the report, presents the findings of the report and gives suggestions on how to combat gender segregation in VET and associated sectors of the labour market. You will also have the chance to ask questions at the webinar. NIKK organises the webinar in collaboration with NIVA , the Nordic Institute for Advanced Training in Occupational Health. The webinar is free of charge and open for everyone.

Date and time: September 13, 10.00-11.00 (CET).
Language: The webinar will be held in English.
