The Gender Jobs Split: a free seminar on gender, jobs and youth
On 1 November, the TUC will launch The Gender Jobs Split, a report on labour market changes over the past 20 years and how they have affected young men and young women. This pamphlet, commissioned from Work Foundation researchers Katy Jones, Ian Brinkley and Neil Lee presents new thinking on gender and the youth labour market.What is happening to the world of work for young people?
How many are trapped in low paid, low-skill jobs? Are the prospects of an apprenticeship or a decent wage still different for young men and young women? Are there still “girls’ jobs” and “boys’ jobs”? How have young men’s and young women’s careers been affected by the expansion of higher education?
The report will be launched at a special seminar on 1 November. Chaired by TUC Head of Economic and Social Affairs Nicola Smith it will feature a presentation of the findings by the report’s authors and expert responses from Rebecca Gill, Director of Policy, Campaigns & Communications at Platform 51 and Richard Exell, Senior Policy Officer at the Trades Union Congress.
Lunch will be available at 12pm and the event will start promptly at 12.30pm.
