Gender and The Future Workforce
A BridgingTheGap™ Report
Lovell Corporation’s Gender and The Future Workforce study examines the shifts in gender-based career preferences of Millennials (born from 1981) and Generation Z (born 1994 onwards) from 3,000 respondents across male, female and gender-neutral (non-binary) perspectives in Canada.
Using this information, we evaluate the status of the gender gap in the workplace—where progress is being made and where it’s not—and how businesses, educators and policymakers can work together to create an inclusive workplace for the next generation.
IN THIS REPORT, YOU WILL DISCOVER:
1. The similarities and differences in occupational interests, work values and priorities, motivating factors and desired supports between males, females and gender-neutral (non-binary) young people.
2. How these preferences affect recruitment and retention of young talent and the gender-specific gaps employers can resolve to create more inclusive workplaces.
3. The implications of the gender-based shifts for achieving gender equality and preparing young talent for the future of jobs.
Lovell will be releasing a report with an in-depth review later in June 2018. Sign up to be sent the full report.
