Fitted for Work actively advocates on behalf of (and with) women experiencing disadvantage to improve their opportunities for sustainable employment.
In 2012 we launched the ‘Women and Sustainable Employment’ research project comprising a review of economic and employment data and our own client research to identify the issues facing women around accessing sustainable employment. Our first project will centre on defining what sustainable employment means to the women we help. These findings will become the key messages of our advocacy program and form the basis of recommendations to organisations that directly influence employment opportunities for women.
