Results of Workshop on Research Needed to Improve the Employment and Employability of Women.
Employment Standards Administration (DOL), Washington, DC. Women's Bureau.
The purpose of this workshop was to review research needs already identified, to determine other areas in which research needs are not being met, and to establish priorities among these areas. The recommendations which were made on subjects such as part-time employment, career patterns, upward mobility, and equal pay form a broad base on which research projects of benefit to women can be developed. Specific research and action recommendations were made for each of the following seven topics presented as papers: (1) "Barriers to Entry and Reentry into the Labor Force," (2) "Part-Time Work and Flexible Hours Employment," (3) "The Earnings Gap: Research Needs and Issues," (4) "Barriers to Promotion and Upward Mobility," (5) "Minority Group Women," (6) "The Conditions of Women in Blue-Collar, Industrial, and Service Jobs: A Review of Research and Proposals for Research, Action, and Policy," (7) "Upward Mobility for Private Household Workers." (Texts of the papers are not included in this report.) Three of the general recommendations made apply to the full scope of research: (1) All data in research projects should be collected and tabulated by sex, race, and ethnicity, (2) a clearinghouse of research on women should be established, and (3) provision should be made for "think research" to develop new and different ways of studying the issues.
