Gender + Family in the Language Services Industry (2023)
Issues related to gender and family are vital concerns around the globe. CSA Research's series on how these affect the language services industry in various regions of the world provide much-needed insight into how they play out for language workers.
Our original study, conducted in 2017, revealed that the industry is above average with respect to gender equality, but also pointed out the structural obstacles that women may face in their careers.
We recently released the results of our follow up study to see if and how the industry has progressed. Based on a survey conducted between December 2022 and June 2023 with 2,854 workers in the language services sector, these results provide a comprehensive view of how issues related to gender, family, and employment affect language professionals. The report is open-access and available for sharing, citing, and reposting.
