Online career support service launches free expert webinar series for career oriented women – assisting in bridging the skilled labour shortages in Australia.

Online PR News – 10-August-2010 – – Recent research has highlighted the need for women to have career development, to meet the need of labour market shortages currently being experienced in Australia. Girls and particularly women over the age of 45 years of age could contribute to society needs that have arisen from the aging population and skills shortages.

Mary McMahon, Jenny Brimrose, and Mark Watson, career development academics from Australia, England and South Africa respectively, have found that even though women's participation in the workforce has increased 'from 43.5% to 58.7% between 1978 and 2009’ gender equity issues remain. They also report that the OECD found in 2002 that adult career services were lacking in Australia and other countries.

These pertinent issues will be addressed within the Australian context, using cutting edge expert interviews, in an online webinar series, facilitated by Leanne Cleghorn from Women In New Careers.
