Chwarae Teg Agile Nation project — Research

Strengthening our understanding and sharing our knowledge.

Research has been undertaken to further support the work of the project and to identify gaps in knowledge which may be resulting in barriers to women’s economic progression in Wales.

All research aims to support women’s progression in the workplace, support employers and learning providers to promote non-traditional career paths to women.

Furthermore, our research forms part of our work with educators to tackle gender stereotyping in work-based learning.
