THE GEN­DER DI­VIDE

Edmonton Journal - - CITY + REGION -

In 2016, the City of Ed­mon­ton asked its em­ploy­ees dozens of ques­tions re­lated to how they feel about their jobs and work­places. The city re­leased the an­swers to 42 of those ques­tions, bro­ken down by branch and gen­der. To de­ter­mine where men and women feel dif­fer­ently about their city jobs, Post­media counted the num­ber of times in a branch where women’s col­lec­tive re­sponses to a ques­tion was 10 per cent higher or lower than men’s col­lec­tive re­sponses. For ex­am­ple, in real es­tate and hous­ing, 91 per cent of men said their im­me­di­ate su­per­vi­sor “en­cour­ages them to of­fer their opin­ions and ideas.” For women, the num­ber was 68 per cent.
