Women and Work 2005: Current RMIT University Research
Papers in this volume range from discussions of women and international development, discrimination issues and organisational concerns. Writers draw on reviews of the literature and both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, including interviews and surveys, to assist them in their analyses of a number of key issues around women and work
The writings in this volume were largely first presented at the Second Annual Women and Work: Current RMIT University Research Conference held in September 2005. Through the continued efforts of co-convenors Sara Charlesworth, Centre for Applied Social Research in the Design and Social Context Portfolio, and Maureen Fastenau, School of Management in the Business Portfolio, the conference provided the opportunity for RMIT staff and students to present in this dynamic and important area. The conference attracted 25 presenters who were invited to submit papers for consideration for this monograph.
The papers included in this monograph highlight the diversity of research on women and work being carried out at RMIT University in 2005, and illustrate the complexity of women’s lives. All papers submitted for consideration for publication were subject to a rigorous double-blind peer review process with academic expert referees drawn from universities across Australia.
