Combating gender segregation in education and labour markets
About this webinar
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 a new report by NIKK, Nordic Information on Gender.
In this webinar, 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.
The webinar will take place on the 13th of September 10.00-11.00 am CET (Central European Time). After the lecture, participants will have time to ask questions to the author of the report.

About the report
The report “Vocational education and training in the Nordic countries” describes the current state of knowledge and the education systems in the Nordic countries. It also provides examples of existing interventions aiming to break patterns of gender segregation in VET programmes in the Nordic countries.
The final part of the report analyses each of its parts and presents recommendations and overall reflections on what needs to be taken into account in future work for change.
