In 2017 Engender launched the Gender Matters Roadmap, which sets out the steps needed to move closer to women's equality in Scotland by 2030.
This paper represents Engender’s ﬁrst thoughts on the challenge of gendering employability. It sets out the gendered context in which employability policy and programmes must operate. It brieﬂy describes the ways in which women’s experiences of the labour market, of education and skills, and of social security are different. It then raises some speciﬁc issues about how employability work in Scotland is developing, before ﬁnally making some recommendations on how this could be better gendered.
