ITF can help address gender segregation issues in the job Market

Schools industry Partnership

ABC news has published an interesting article written by Justine Parker on the topic of gender segregation in the Australian job market. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-02-10/men-entering-health-pink-collar-jobs/8258424

She writes: “…gender segregation is actually getting worse,…we are not encouraging young women to look to industries other health care and social assistance, and vice versa, we are not encouraging men to look at the more female-dominated industries - that are growth areas."

Sign up as volunteer with ITF and offer one hour per year to visit a school to inspire young people to broaden their career aspirations and consider non-traditional vocational pathways.
