Women, Work & Leadership Research Group Research highlights: Flexibility, employment and gender equality

The Women, Work & Leadership Research Group (WW&LRG) at the University of Sydney Business School provides a focal point for collaboration between leading scholars, business practitioners and policy makers with an interest in women and work, in building more equitable workplaces and more sustainable careers for women. The WW&LRG engages closely with debates about the megatrends impacting the workforce, including the feminisation of the workforce, population ageing, flexibility and technological change and emerging issues which lead to changing expectations of employers, employees and of the organisation of work.

The Co-Directors of the WW&LRG Professor Marian Baird and Associate Professor Rae Cooper have considerable expertise in undertaking engaged research, and in public speaking and media presentations. To date the WW&LRG has made significant contributions to both government and company policies about parental leave, women and leadership, flexible and gender equitable work arrangements and domestic and family violence leave. Recent studies and reports have included a focus on women and leadership in the NSW public sector, the work and leadership of women in male dominated industries and occupations, work and care chains in the Asia-Pacific, the operationalisation of flexible working arrangements and analysis of the financial impact of changes to Australia's paid parental leave system.
