Occupational Segregation Primer

This Google Hangout features five participants from different sectors discussing the impact and limitations of occupational segregation for women, men and the economy over all. Taking advantage of the cross-sectoral dialogue, participants lay out major issues contributing to occupational segregation’s persistent presence in the U.S. labor force – e.g., education, traditional divisions of labor, historical trends, stereotyping and rigid gender norms. At the same time, they assess recent and ongoing developments helping to reshape some pockets of labor and work to be more gender equal.

Discussion is broken into the five segments below.
