Alison is looking for feedback for her current project, where she is developing comparative indicators on work-life balance measures (namely parental leave) as part of the European Institute for Gender Equality’s Gender Equality Index. The problems she will be discussing in this seminar are around the operationalisation of concepts into quantitative indicators, especially in a field where data isn’t widely available and isn’t always quantitative.

This seminar will take place ion 13th November in the staff room on the 6th floor of the Chrystal Macmillan Building.
