Research into gender and employment turned into educational materials for teenagers

social policy analysis activity sheet

A brochure and activity sheet based on Helen Kowalewska’s research has been created by Futurum Careers, a free online resource and magazine aimed at encouraging 14-19-year-olds worldwide to pursue careers in STEM and research. They work with academics all over the world and translate their research into free education resources.

The materials are targeted at secondary school pupils and are designed to inform students about Helen’s research which analyses the social policies that best support women’s employment, women’s representation in top jobs, and gender-friendly workplaces. The materials, including an activity sheet, are also designed to get them thinking about social policy as a degree subject and career more widely.

The research papers on which the materials are based are:

Bringing Women on Board: The Social Policy Implications of Gender Diversity in Top Jobs

Bringing Women on Board? Family Policies, Quotas and Gender Diversity in Top Jobs

You can find further information about the materials on the Futurum website.
