EOC occupational segregation investigation gets underway

The
Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) investigation into occupational
segregation will get under way later today, when a panel of experts come
together for the first time.

The
team of industry, union, government, education and training organisations are
meeting up to discuss the causes of occupational segregation – the
concentration of women and men in very different kinds of job.

The
advisory board will examine the evidence gathered during the investigation and

comment
on the findings and recommendations that emerge.
