Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research

The conference How Gender Equality can contribute to Fair Jobs and Growth is organised by the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research, placed at the University of Gothenburg.

The overall task of the Secretariat is to strengthen the impact of research and knowledge related to gender and gender equality in academia and the rest of society. It was inaugurated in 1998 as part of a major Swedish parliamentary initiative for research with a gender perspective and operates under the direction of the Swedish government. The Secretariat is analysing and disseminating information about a great range of issues related to gender research. It also arranges forums, conferences and seminars within and outside academia, for and between researchers, funders and decision makers.
