Sue Pearce - Changing Role Of Women In The Workplace (13 June 2016)

SUE PEARCE TALKS ABOUT HER WORK IN A MALE-SKEWED WORLD



After more than 30 years in the British criminal justice sector, initially as a probation officer, Sue Pearce left at Director level and now works in the public, private and not-for-profit sector as a workplace mediator and management consultant, typically in the areas of criminal justice, substance misuse, and community safety, including domestic abuse and probation practice. She has specialized in work with female offenders and with perpetrators and victims of domestic abuse. This work has facilitated working alongside other jurisdictions including the USA, Sweden, the Netherlands and Albania.


Sue has seen many changes to the British criminal justice system, including the role of women in the workplace. She will share some of these experiences, reflecting on how women were/are perceived in this sector and the challenges faced by women working in several jurisdictions. In addition, Sue will describe past and current treatment of women in prison and on probation and how that relates to constructs of gender.
