AAAE Webinar: Unmasking Differences in Women’s Full-time Employment
This presentation will focus on how women’s full-time employment rates evolved from 2007 to 2021. It will discuss the extent to which aggregate statistics on full-time employment mask the distinct experiences of diverse groups of women, namely Indigenous women, immigrant women, and non-Indigenous women born in Canada. This allows for a better understanding of how the dynamics in full-time employment by population group either mirror or deviate from broad patterns by age, education and marriage and motherhood status.
