Notice on blue collar women in the City of Montreal
DESCRIPTION OF THE PROJECT
In partnership with Action travail des femmes (ATF) and the Table des groupes de femmes de Montréal (TGFM), the Conseil des Montréalaises (CM) wishes to publish a notice on blue-collar women at the City of Montreal. Considering the small and decreasing number of women in this job category, the members of the CM want to paint a picture of the situation regarding the recruitment, hiring, integration, retention and promotion of women in this type of job and thus follow up on their publication "Col bleu, un emploi pas toujours rose" published in 2013.
Under the supervision of the CM Research Committee, the researcher's mandate is to write an opinion that will include:
- a short portrait of blue-collar women
- a summary review of the literature
- a presentation of the methodology
- an analysis of the survey results
- a summary review of best practices regarding women in male-dominated jobs
- the identification of systemic barriers in the hiring, retention and promotion of blue collar women from an intersectional perspective
- recommendations for action
- a bibliography.
In order to write the opinion, the researcher will first:
- conduct and analyze a survey of blue-collar workers in the City of Montreal
- organize meetings with community, municipal and institutional actors.
