Genusjobb goes GenderJob
The Swedish Facebook page “Genusjobb” is now part of GenderJob.org – and is accordingly renamed GenderJob. This means that we at NIKK has taken over the page.
“Genusjobb”, like GenderJob, have included information on gender profiled vacancies – but have covered only Sweden. Since NIKK has taken over the administration, the work will now be done with a wider Nordic perspective.
– We hope that all followers will be happy with the change, and continue to share, follow us and tell us about jobs, says Jenny Gustafson, web editor at NIKK.
“Genusjobb” started as a volunteer initiative in 2014 as a site for people looking for jobs with a gender profile in Sweden. On the founder Sanna Gustavsson’s request, NIKK has now taken over the administration. The web portal GenderJob has been in existence since June 2014 and is a collaboration between eight national knowledge centers in the Nordic region with a focus on gender and gender equality – such as KVINFO in Denmark, Kilden in Norway, Minna in Finland and The Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research in Sweden. In addition to GenderJob NIKK also coordinates the portals GenderFund (lists funding opportunities for projects related to gender and equality), and GenderCalendar (conferences, seminars, courses and other events in the field).
