Discussion Paper 2021/02 Leftemap olgeta: Seasonal Work, Women and Leadership
The potential for seasonal work opportunities in Australia and New Zealand to influence attitudes towards gender relations in Pacific Island countries has been the subject of interest by policymakers, employers and scholars for quite some time. While women participate in seasonal work programs in small numbers, when they do, the economic gains that women make are assumed to provide the potential for women to transform their lives and social status on their return home. This paper shares experiences of ni-Vanuatu women who participated in a training program that focused on their leadership development during their engagement in seasonal work in New Zealand.
