The Women and Work Research Group (WWRG) at the University of Sydney Business School provides a scholarly environment for inquiry into all aspects of women, work, employment, family and community in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. It provides a focal point for collaboration with established and leading and emerging scholars, with research centres with similar interests and with practitioners and policy makers in the field. The WWRG has an extensive membership of academics and practitioners and holds regular seminars, roundtables and conferences.
The WWRG also engages closely with public and political debates about maternity, family and carers' leave, the implications of changing industrial relations regulations on women, child care and family violence. Recent studies and reports have included a focus on women and leadership in the NSW public sector, on work and care chains in the Asia-Pacific, analysis of the financial impact of changes to Australia's paid parental leave system and on paid domestic leave.
The conference brings together Australian and Swedish researchers who will report on their recent investigations of health care and aged care as gendered industries, workplaces, institutions and domains of 'informal' care.
