We invite students, academics, researchers and practitioners with an interest in women, work, economic inequalities, comparative research and/or quantitative methods to join us for this session.

The PG Q-Step network is a forum for postgraduates interested quantitative research to share ideas and learn from each other. This session hosted by the City Department of Sociology and the City Q-Step Centre will provide a unique opportunity to hear about the research being conducted in the field of work, class, gender and inequalities by postgraduates across the various Q-Step centres. It will take place immediately prior to the annual Rosemary Crompton memorial lecture on April 27th.

The confirmed speakers of the Network Seminar include:
* Charlotte Brookfield, Cardiff University – Gender differences in sociological research
* Heather Piggott, University of Manchester - Attitudes towards women’s work in rural India and Bangladesh

* Dr Vanessa Gash (Senior Lecturer in Sociology, City University, Fellow of the Centre for Comparative Social Surveys (CCSS)and convenor of the Work, Class and Gender study group at City)

We will have short sets of presentations followed by a Q&A on the topics discussed to highlight the issues or challenges cited by those carrying out quantitative research in the fields of women, work and/or quantitative methods.

There will be a networking lunch immediately prior to the session so attendees can familiarise themselves with one another and their work and/or interest in these fields from the onset.
