Pan-northern study to explore gender gaps in employment, education

December 12, 2012

The Nunavut Literacy Council has launched a pan-northern study to find out why Inuit women outnumber men in government jobs and in higher education enrolment. Titled the Northern Men's Research Project, the 3-year initiative also strives to discover what can be done to encourage more men to participate in formal education and in the workforce. The project will also involve literacy groups in Labrador, the Northwest Territories, and Yukon. Interviewing will soon be underway, and the results should be released in about 2 years. CBC
