Recent changes in policies and practices in the public and private sectors have led to an increasing number of job possibilities for people knowledgeable about women and gender issues. Personnel offices, human resources, public policy, government, police forces, social services agencies and educational institutions are all interested in employees with such knowledge, especially for positions dealing with employment equity and sexual harassment.

Women and Gender Studies courses can also help to prepare you for careers in areas such as law, medicine, business, politics, community action, social policy and planning, fine arts, teaching and research.

Laurier's Career Development Centre can help you plan for life after university. The Career Development Centre exists to ensure that career development is an integral part of your Laurier experience. Our programs and services are available to both students and alumni of Laurier.
