Gender Differences in Supported Employment? : a study of the importance of gender in a Supported Employment initiative for young people with disability (English)
Abstract [en]

Previous research has indicated that women are disfavoured in vocational rehabilitation and also in Supported Employment (SE), but the research field is still unclear and further research is needed. The purpose of this study was to explore gender differences in the outcome of a SE programme with participants with activity compensation (disability pension) in Sweden. Questionnaires and focus group interviews with the employment consultants in the programme were used. Statistical analyses of the results from the questionnaires (n=99) showed no significant gender differences in the outcomes of the SE programme or other significant gender differences among the participants. The qualitative content analysis of the focus group interviews showed that the employment consultants considered other factors, such as disability, experience, insightfulness and social support, more important than gender for the outcome of the SE programme, but they also considered both the labour market and the work preferences of their participants considerably gender segregated.  The employment consultants tried to minimize the importance of these factors, including the gender segregated labour market, by broadening the participants’ horizons of the labour market. This study concluded that SE does not need to be gender discriminating, but further research is needed.
