Gender: In Their Words

Gender

 

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. In these videos, various industry notables discuss their experience and their take on the data and analysis provided by CSA Research.

Please read on to the questions we asked our colleagues, and watch a video of their feedback.

 

Question 1

What stood out to you in the CSA Research report on gender and family issues in the localization industry? Were there any surprises – good or bad – or areas where you think the industry needs to make changes?

Saudisoft

Question 2

Women occupy the majority of positions in the localization industry and have a lower pay gap than is seen in many industries.

However, CSA Research’s examination shows that women do not reach top-level positions as often as men.

How do you think organizations could better support women’s careers paths?
