1st International (and 3rd National) Women Research Symposium on Women in Working Life” during October 13-14, 2017

by  the Women Research Application and Research Center of Eskisehir Osmangazi University, Eskisehir, Turkey


Dear Participants,

It is my pleasure to announce that the 1st International (and 3rd National) Women Research Symposium on “Women in Working Life” will be held by the Women Research Application and Research Center of Eskisehir Osmangazi University, Eskisehir, Turkey, during October 13-14, 2017. More detailed information may be obtained through the symposium webpage, http://eskas2017.ogu.edu.tr/ 

Women in working life is a critically important topic, since women becoming financially independent resulted not only in changes in her self-perception, discovery of her abilities, and observation of herself in different mirrors, but also in fundamental changes in relationships with the family and the society. Employment of women as a key factor of economic balance of power brought about both opportunities and issues. During the conference we aim at discussing the opportunities brought about by employment of women in different branches, problems determined through industry-specific evaluations, experiences of accomplished women, success stories of women in different branches of working life, and other related topics.

The Symposium will have oral and poster presentations. Participants who submit full-text manuscripts (optional) will have the opportunity for consideration of their improved manuscripts for possible publication by Eskisehir Osmangazi University Journal of Social Sciences, after going through a separate review process. The journal is an international refereed journal indexed in TÜBİTAK-ULAKBİM Social Science Database, Ebscohost, International Bibliography of the Social Sciences (IBSS) and in Akademia Social Sciences Index (ASOS Index).

We look forward to meet you at the Symposium.
