Help us understand the career opportunities and barriers for women employed in the NSW NGO social services sector
In the lead up to International Women’s Day, NCOSS is undertaking research into the barriers and opportunities for women in the social services sector when it comes to building a career, furthering their skills and progressing into more senior or specialised roles.
We have a very short (10 mins max) survey out in the field at the moment and we are wanting as many employees, from different parts of the sector and at different levels, to participate.
The results will inform our advocacy to the NSW Government about what’s needed to ensure a strong and thriving social services sector and better economic outcomes for women.
