Careers in Women and Gender Studies

Recent changes in policies and practices in the public and private sectors have led to an increasing number of job possibilities for people knowledgeable about women and gender issues. Personnel offices, human resources, public policy, government, police forces, social services agencies and educational institutions, are all interested in employees with such knowledge, especially for positions such as employment equity and sexual harassment positions. Women and Gender Studies coursescan also help to prepare students for careers in areas such as law, medicine, business, politics, community action, social policy and planning, fine arts, teaching and research.
